Decemberists...

What musical culture do you engage with ?

Last night, I went to The Junction in Cambridge to see a band that no-one I speak to has ever heard of, but who have provided me with years of entertainment. On the way, saw my first garage with diesel at 101.9p per litre...

The band are called "The Decemberists", and are from Oregon in the USA.

There were quite a few people with digital cameras in the audience, and I figured that some of those might be Flickr users. Checked today, and discovered the photos of Flickr user Carbon Monoxide. Here are a couple of shots of what was a superb concert (apart from the usual people in the crowd who decide to have a shouted conversation rather than listen to the band...) - Colin Meloy, who was fantastic - great vocals and audience banter...

Jenny Conlee - great organ playing and other instrumentation and was "well into it "Nate Query - bassist...

Not pictured: Chris Funk and John Moen...

The band are also MOBLOGGING their tour apparently, but there's not a lot there to be honest...

Any other Decemberist loving Geographers out there ?
