Show Post: In House #1479

Outside of, say, having all of their equipment stolen right before a major tour, it's been a pretty good year for the Decemberists. 1- Their third full-length, Picaresque, was released last spring and has garnered rave reviews as well as newfound attention for the band. 2- They've been engaged in a very successful and seemingly never-ending tour, headlining festivals and such all over the place. 3- In addition, they also seem to be the darlings of, well, everybody-- snooty hipster music mags included. Add to all of this the fact that the stolen gear was (mostly) later recovered and you have the makings of a banner year. Could things get any better? Well, they're playing the Big Easy in Boise tonight, so I guess that's a start. Cass McCombs opens the show.

In House #1479.
Airdate: 10/25/05
Focus: The Decemberists in Boise tonight, plus selections from the "PDX Pop Now! 2005" compilation and new music from the Mendoza Line, Rogue Wave, Harvey Danger and more.

they put on a great live show, too, and seem like they have a lot of unscripted fun with it.

thanks for reading/listening/watching....
