Adored Mailing List Recipients,
As Phase One of A Short Fazed Hovel Tour wraps up this weekend in Minneapolis, the concrete is nearly set for Phase Two. We’ll be announcing two more shows next week (hint: one of the cities we’re playing rhymes with Garofalo). Today, we are pleased to announce that The Decemberists will be playing Mountain Park in Holyoke, Massachusetts on Sunday, August 16th. The Heartless Bastards will open. A presale is currently underway at http://decemberists.tickets.musictoday.com and tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, June 19 at 10 am at http://www.iheg.com/mountain_park_main.asp. Check out full tour date information at http://home.decemberists.com/tour.aspx.
Also, for those of you that are dipping your toe in the Hazards of Love water one track at a time (for god’s sake, jump in already), our friends at KEXP in Seattle will be featuring “The Wanting Comes in Waves/Repaid” as their Song of the Day this Friday, June 19.
