thursday agenda: decemberists, yeasayer

A good night for going out, but with (another) Democratic debate and (finally!) the season premiere of LOST on television, I doubt that I’ll leave the house. For the more social, less nerdy, among us then:

  • It’s night two of two for the Decemberists, who are back in action after cancelling last year’s “long and short of it” tour. I’m still sad that they didn’t give those of us who aren’t enamoured with the epic olde tymey piratey military stuff a night of our own to remember all of the pop songwritey genius, but based on the public perception of the band as literary wonderkids, I suspect that I am in the minority on this front. If you go, please let us know what sort of historical-inspired dramas overtake the crowd this evening. $34, 8 pm [moore]
  • Yeasayer (I could spend all day listening to All Hour Cymbals trying to think of descriptive text, but doubt that I’d come up with anything better than “Middle Eastern-Psych-Pop-Snap-Gospel” [gvb] or “Byrne disciples” [pfork]) headlines a mega-lineup, including recently Croc-displaced Black Mountain. With MGMT, Howling Rain. $12, 8pm [neumos]
