Adored Mailing List Recipients,
Let me, the disembodied voice with which your brain voices everything you read, be the first to welcome you to this moment, this day, this glorious first day of June. Â In fact, I would appreciate it if you allowed this selfsame disembodied voice to take on the lilting cadence of an Italian shepherdess, speaking in a charmingly clumsy patois as you both lay supine under a Florentine sun — you can do that for me, can’t you?
We Decemberists are appearing live in not one, butÂ two venues in the coming months and we thought it appropriate that we inform you of this happening, since you’d gone so far out of your way as to sign up for our mailing list. Â Those two dates are as follows:
September 4, Memorial Stadium at Bumbershoot, Seattle, WA
Supporting Bob Dylan with Neko Case. Â Tickets and more info here.
September 11, Pioneer Courthouse Square at Music Fest Northwest, Portland, OR.
Tickets and more info here.
In other Decemberist news, you might be pleased to know that we are currently recording what will no doubt become our SIXTH record at a barn in an undisclosed location near Portland. Â Our esteemed management has suggested that you might appreciate a photo documentation of this endeavor, so I conclude by attaching the following snapshot:
