Day 18 – The Decemberists

To be honest, it took me awhile to get into The Decemberists.  I didn’t really get what they were all about.  They had songs that I really liked, but I don’t think I listened to a complete album until they came out with The Hazards of Love last year – and that’s mostly because it’s basically a musical.  🙂 Now I love them.

We got to see them perform The Hazards of Love last Spring.  It was so much fun.  I think it was one of the funnest concerts I have ever been to.  The first half was just Hazards and the second half they played some of their old songs.  The lead singer, Colin Meloy even directed the crowd in a reenactment of the old computer game Oregon Trail complete with mountains, rivers, gypsies, camels and all the other things that are typically related to the Oregon Trail.
