Last Wednesday M and I went to go see The Decemberists. I love this band, I think they are wonderful and so unique, but I think I forget just how fantastic they are live in between shows. This time, y’all — this time was the best. It might have been because this time they played both Crane Wife 1, 2 & 3 and The Mariner’s Revenge song, neither of which I had heard live before (and I really wanted to). I introduced M to this band, and he was excited about this show based on how much he liked their most recent album, but he wasn’t expecting to be as blown away as he was by the show either.
It’s not at all the same, but here’s a playlist of the setlist from Wednesday night, as well as the Setlist.fm link.
