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.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
