Decemberists gig, Barrowland Ballroom, March 5th 2011

Last night, I went with Alex to the Barrowland Ballroom in the Barras area of Glasgow to hear one of my favourite bands, The Decemberists. See their amazing website for more details!

This is the second time I’ve seen them live and as always, Colin Meloy, the lead singer, was awesome at working the crowd and provided a very entertaining commentary between songs. Here are some pics from the evening:

For my fellow Decemberists fans, the setlist went something like this: (although I can’t remember exactly, and I didn’t know some of the songs as they were from their new album, The King is Dead)


California One/Youth and Beauty Brigade
?July, July!
The Gymnast, High Above the Ground
Los Angeles, I’m Yours
Some tracks from their new album, The King is Dead (I think one was Rox in the Box)
The Crane Wife Pt 3
Won’t Want for Love (Margaret in the Taiga)
The Rake’s Song
16 Military Wives (including audience participation!)
Son’s and Daughters

Encores:
Eli, The Barrow Boy
The Mariner’s Revenge Song

Right, I’ve got the concerto prelim tomorrow morning at 10.40am so better get some sleep…

EDIT: the band just posted their actual setlist on their facebook page. I’m pleased to report that my memory was pleasingly accurate, give or take a few songs! 🙂
