The Decemberists at MASS MoCA

the decemberists

The Decemberists are set to play a show at MASS MoCA June 15. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 19 -- they're $45 ahead / $55 day of. (There are also MASS MoCA member and Spotify presales starting Thursday.)

The band will be touring in support of a new album that's out March 16. Show/album blurbage:

With I'll Be Your Girl, the Decemberists--lead vocalist and guitarist Meloy, guitarist Chris Funk, keyboardist Jenny Conlee, bassist Nate Query, and drummer John Moen--explore new approaches to making music and broaden their sonic range. Previous Decemberists' records, such as The Hazards of Love or The Crane Wife, have been structured around thematic or musical concepts, though Meloy maintains that ultimately it's always "our frame of mind that ties them together." This time, he says, the songs share a mood that's steeped in our current times and condition-- "exuberant nihilism, an apocalyptic dance party was what we envisioned."

We're guessing this show will sell out, and probably quickly. So if you'd like to go, well, you know, don't wait.

Speaking of MASS MoCA concerts
+ The Bon Iver shows in March are sold out.
+ As is the Sylvan Esso show March 31.

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.
