New Year’s Eve in San Francisco, Australian Dates Added

Adored Mailing List Recipients,

Apologies for that last message you likely received via these channels. Certain tax documents have come to light considering the group of “self-described motivational/spiritual mentors” to whom we loaned our mailing list and we have quickly moved to separate ourselves from their organization. Call 971-23-ALIVE and follow the speakers instructions AT YOUR OWN FINANCIAL RISK.

To make up for this great lapse in judgment on our part, we’d like to give you INSIDE INFORMATION regarding a very special event that is about to go down in the great city of SAN FRANCISCO.

Bear witness to a turning of the season! Come welcome in the New Year with The Decemberists and very special guest Thao & The Get Down Stay Down at the Masonic in San Francisco on December 31 at A VERY DECEMBER EVENING. This will be the second only New Year’s Eve show the band has ever played (the first being, as far as anyone can remember, some random show at an arts center in Seattle in 2003 where the band was guaranteed the highest fee they’d been offered to date, which they promptly blew on tux rentals and a few cases of very high-end champagne – they will not make this mistake again).

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, October 30, at 10am PT here.

Please come. Dress nice. Or dress down. Bring your sweetheart. Or your friend. Or just yourself. Come say fare-thee-well to 2015 and a hale hello to 2016. Come see out December, awash in the glow of your newfound Decemberism.

The new year will bring about the band’s return to AUSTRALIA for Bluesfest Byron Bay. As we’re feeling generous with our INSIDE INFORMATION, we now can inform you that they will be following up the festival with shows in Melbourne and Sydney at Hamer Hall on March 29 with special guest Shakey Graves and Sydney Opera House on March 30, respectively. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 9am AEST.
