Went to see “The Long of It,” first of a two night engagement for the Decemberists, on Sunday evening with Lil Bit. What a great show … musically, excellent; and they were also a lot of fun, and seemed to really enjoy each other, the audience, everything. How often do you get to simulate the screams of folks being eaten by whales at a show, I ask you? We were sorry to have to miss “The Short of It.”

I realize I am falling down on the job a bit here, with the music posting and all. Apologies. In consolation, I offer a track by the Decemberists, below …
