In speaking with my mom a couple of days ago, I found out that the Decemberists are coming to Portland to play a concert next week. Admission will be a paltry five dollars. I was beside myself when I heard this and briefly considered going home just so I could see the show. Granted, that doesn't make a whole lot of sense - were I to do so, I'd be foregoing at least three days' worth of work and about a hundred dollars' worth of gas to see them.
Still, though, it's the Decemberists. Sigh.
On the plus side, though, they're releasing a new album on October 3 that I plan on purchasing. It promises to be good. I really like those Decemberists.
