The Decemberists + M. Ward

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Portland, Oregon's Decemberists attract a nerdily passionate following thanks to their knowing (and, to some, pretentious) indie antiquarianism. It's an aesthetic the band all but abandoned on its latest, I'll Be Your Girl, calling in producer John Congleton and looking to Roxy Music, New Order and Depeche Mode for inspiration. It's a decidedly new direction for the 17-year-old band that should translate into an especially spirited show.
