I finally got to see The Decemberists live… but before I go on can I just say how completely smitten I am with Mr.Colin Meloy. I think he is the bees knees. He is a quirky, geeky, guitar-playing cutie. The show was absolutely amazing, completely enjoyable. They did a wonderful mix of old and new songs, which pleased me quite a bit. I definitely had a new appreciation for the new album, The King Is Dead.

    I think Colin Meloy is adorable, too. I’m so glad you enjoyed the show. They really give everything they’ve got in concert.

    I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them 3 times; they put on a great show. One of the shows was with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Mann Music Center…it was unbelievable!
