The Decemberists have announced dates for their 20th anniversary summer tour, including a performance at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchards in Lafayette on August 15 and Central Park Summer Stage on August 20.
The group, who first formed in 2000 in Portland, Oregon, will embark on a summer tour headed from the Pacific Northwest to the Northeast, with a final stop at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on August 22.
“Twenty years ago, in a basement practice space in Portland, Oregon, a bunch of musicians threw together under the name The December Brides, a name that lasted only a few hours before it was marginally improved to The Decemberists,” says the band’s frontman Colin Meloy. “On such occasions, it seems fitting to throw some kind of party. And so we’re heading out on the road, we Decemberists, to celebrate the work we’ve made over the last two decades.” For more information and tickets visit decemberists.com.
