Best. Band. Ever.

I got me a brand new concert T-shirt and BigDubb scored me half a tambourine at the Decemberists concert in Minneapolis last night. I'm just a wee bit obsessed with the band right now, but I think I can objectively say that it was the best most awesomest concert ever put on by human kind, complete with sea chanties, audience participation, and spot-on Debra Winger impressions.

Look how hard I rock with my new Decemberists T-shirt and tambourine. I'm thinking about starting a band. Or at least joining the Decemberists, if they would have me:

That is my best pirate scowl. Needs work. I feel kinda bad taking half their tambourine after they already had all of their instruments and gear stolen last month, but I doubt the thing would be of much use to them anymore anyway. And at least at my house it will be worshipped nightly.

I attended the concert with B Stacy B, and although I felt bad her view of the show was obstructed by some obnoxious hippy broad, I didn't feel bad enough to offer her my seat. But she enjoyed the concert anyway, and we danced the night away afterwards. Saturday night concerts are the best.

ARrrrr matie.

Yes it was a great show. I must admit, getting hit on by a fat hawiaan at the bar aftward is running a close second to the show.

I need to uncomfortably state again I might have a new favorite band...move over gaelic storm...thanks for bringing me.

your shirt looks cute,with the exception of it being a tad snug...just kidding.

Great band. I saw them last week in Iowa City.

Don't feel bad about the tambourine, apparently they're throwing one out to the audience for every show.

They threw out a tambourine to the crowd as well. This was half of a damaged tambourine played during the whole show. It got a little beat up during the Tain, their 18-minute epic masterpiece.

PSSST - Dan spilled a huge amount of blue cheese dressing on that t-shirt on Sunday afternoon and we all know he is wearing it right now, under his work shirt having not washed it. Gross.

Are you eyes really that green or is it the shirt?

By Blogger Kohn, at 1:24 PM  

I'm as green as that shirt with envy.
Thanks to you Dan, The Decemberists are a new favorite of mine.

My eyes are a dull gray except for when I wear green Decemberist T-shirts. Then they perk up.

Dan-you've completely turned me on to this band. Fanfreakin'tastic.
Just saw they are coming my way next month (Nashville)...maybe I'll be fortunate enough to confiscate half a broken instrument! Thanks for the heads up on such musical genius!!
