I FUCKIN LOVE THE DECEMBERISTS.
Seriously, I love them more then any band in the world, and I had the privilege to see them live at Terminal 5 Last week. My god, they were so wonderful. I also really, really enjoyed Loch Lomond. They opened for The Decemberists, and they were really fantastic and quite interesting (different, in a really nice way!)
The concert was definitely the best i've ever seen.
I cannot wait for their new album "Hazards of Love" to be released. April 2009!
