Ooh, another Decemberists fan! I consider us fairly thin on the ground in the UK. But come their February tour... well. Are you going to any of the dates? I'll be at Manchester, London and Southampton. Yeah, a bit obsessive but there we are.

Sadly I won't be making any of the dates. To make matters worse, I am still shocked that I declined to go and see them when they played in a small venue about 10 minutes walk away from our house! At the time (around the time of the Tain ep) I thought that they were "too close to folk music" for my liking. How daft!

Have fun at the gigs and let me know what I'm missing.
