In our last e-missive, there was a passing reference to the fact that summer is upon us. That, my friends, does not appear to still be true in some northwestern climes. Fall seems to be creeping in with its mossy, moldering fingers.

And so: what better time to hit the road to bring our Decemberists' entertainments to the public, to the masses? And so: the Decemberists will be bringing the Bridesmaid Revisted Tour 2008 to a few fair US cities in November. Dates are as follow:

11-05 New York, NY - Terminal 5
11-06 Boston, MA - The Orpheum
11-07 Philadelphia, PA - Electric Factory
11-08 Baltimore, MD - Ramís Head Live
11-09 Ithaca, NY - Cornell University, Barton Hall
11-11 Montclair, NJ - Wellmont Theatre
11-24 Los Angeles, CA - The Wiltern
11-25 San Francisco, CA - Warfield Theatre
11-29 Portland, OR - Crystal Ballroom
11-30 Seattle, WA - The Moore Theatre

A limited number of pre-order tickets go on sale today, September 2nd, to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis at http://www.decemberists.com.tickets.musictoday.com. General ticket on-sales begin on Saturday, September 6th for East Coast dates and on Saturday, September 13th for West Coast dates. Our good friends and fellow PDXers Loch Lomond will be opening the dates.

Wasn't really that excited, but would've gone to see a Toronto show...

Did they ever make up the dates for those shows they canceled?  Weren't they going to play one night of all long songs, then another night of all short songs?

That tour was outright canceled after one two-night stand.

The recordings fromt hose shows (Chicago) are on the Archive and are terrific.

QFT. The recordings on the llama are fantastic.

I believe it was illness.

They had previously canceled some Europe dates and then tried the long & short of it tour a month later but the person was not well enough to manage.

end of sons and daughters. should have grabbed more video. i'll post a few pics later.

RJ, the setlist was pretty much the same as 10/30, but they added several more songs in INCLUDING Mariner's Revenge, where Chris Funk came out with a stand-up cardboard figure of Obama instead of the giant whale mouth :)

I'm hoping for another tour soon, with a Toronto stop.

Nice vid.
Shame you didn't shoot more video, that was a cool vantage point.

I sort of agree with Matt, I hope they tour soon and come to DC.

didn't have enough space on the memory card. i swapped out with my buddy to try it out at the end. it was a GREAT spot to see the show. i had read horrible things about the sound in that place, so i wanted to be in a decent spot. you can hear how the sound drops off greatly just as i panned the camera.

hope you guys get to see them. unbelievable show. they played until they got thrown off the stage due to a curfew on the performances; they actually started before 9 and played for about 2 1/2 hours with no real break. i'll post a setlist later when i can focus.
