The Decemberists at Brewery Ommegang

the decemberists 2015

Announced today: The Decemberists are set to play a show at Brewery Ommegang July 26. Tickets go on sale Friday (April 3) -- they're $35 ahead. (There's also a presale starting today for members of the mailing list for promoter Dan Smalls Presents.)

The Decemberists by themselves are a pretty big draw -- they've been playing a string of sold-out shows recently. (Here's a review of a show this week. A giant paper mache whale was involved.) But the show also includes a strong opener -- indie pop act Lucius will take the stage first. They played a sold out show at The Hollow in Albany this past December.

Can't wait for this! The Decemberists haven't been around in a long while (they were on hiatus for a few years), but they used to hit this area (well, western Mass) on every tour. Their shows are always so much fun - audience participation, banter, etc. And seeing them outside a nice summer night is especially great. And Lucius as the opener?! This will be this year's show to beat, IMHO.
