Local Melbourne musicians are banding together to celebrate seminal indie band Death Cab for Cutie
It’s been 15 years since Death Cab for Cutie released Transatlanticism. Let’s let that sink in for a second. The album, released in 2003, was a critical success for the US band, and it features singles ‘The New Year’, ‘Title and Registration’ and title song ‘Transatlanticism’. The album meant a lot to a lot of people, so a bunch of Melbourne musicians have decided to pay tribute in a one-off concert at the Corner Hotel.
So This Is A Death Cab for Cutie Party will bring JP Klipspringer, J M S Harrison, Lauren Perkins (from Face Face), Emma Heeney and many more together to perform Transatlanticism in its entirety, as well as a few other songs from Death Cab’s back catalogue, including hits from Plans, Narrow Stairs and more. They might even throw in a few Postal Service songs if we’re lucky.
It all goes down on Saturday August 11 at the Corner. Get ready to succumb to all those early-aughts emo feels all over again.
