Event details

If life were a Tim Burton movie, then The Decemberists would be its soundtrack. Like the renowned movie director, Decemberists' frontman Colin Meloy is a master of the tall tale, spinning lyrical yarns about orphans, Chinese trapeze artists, chimney sweeps and other unlikely characters. Meloy is backed by an accomplished ensemble that includes accordion, upright bass, acoustic guitar, pedal steel guitar and even a theremin. The group goes full-on prog rock on its latest LP "The Hazards of Love," setting the stage for its most epic show to date.
