The Decemberists Announce First Show in Three Years
The Decemberists have announced their first show in three years. The indie-rock pioneers will take the stage at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR for a benefit concert on May 30. The group will perform their 2002 debut Castaways and Cutouts and a few other choice cuts during the show, which will feature an opening set by Sallie Ford. Proceeds from the concert—dubbed “V is for Victory”—will go to the Victory Academy, a school for children with autism.
The Decemberists are currently working on a follow up to their last album, 2011’s The King Is Dead.
Tickets for the upcoming show will go on sale this Friday, May 7.
