Anybody home?

The Decemberists ---I don't know anything about this band, but I've heard them mentioned by non-squares in a lot of cool circles. Haven't I? You tell me, you are the cool people I learn these things from.

Well, Colin Meloy, the frontman, will be playing a solo, live acoustic webcast tonight, Saturday night, on NPR. Article says he will be performing this solo work along with Laura Veirs, singer-songwriter.

All of this begins at approximately 7:30pm.

I'm just sayin.
UPDATE:
They have the taped live performance available here.
I find this funny, PBR is the sponsor for this concert. Worth it just to listen to the NPR-voice-guy say, "Pabst Blue Ribbon beer" at the beginning.

Collin Meloy has an album of acoustic Morrisy covers. And his first band, Tarkio has some nice non-seafaring type songs as well.

how's that for cool? seriously, tell me, because it makes me feel better.

Ow! Let me try. The Decemberists have recently been joined by Petra Haden, former member of that dog and The Rentals. She sings a Kate Bush cover in concert and it is awesome.

Clunky and C-Dub, tag team of Decemberist knowledge... (I learned everything I know from him).
