Another solid show as always from The Decemberist, although hopefully at some point their drop their fascination with Prog Rock.  Would prefer 3 or 4 songs verses the 19 minute "Joan In The Garden".  Can't recall Chris Funk rocking out on Baritone Sax or not before, but him and trumpet player were a nice addition. 

Ratboys were just a whole bunch of fun, a bit like a more raucous version of Velocity Girl.

Joan is totally like Floyd’s Echoes!

Did they not have Moen on drums?

It was funny how they said they had “one more” and then proceeded to play a 20 minute prog epic!!

They have been using as their "encore" so far this tour, it's a decent song just not certainly a song I would want to hear live.  The only changes in their line-up since Moen joined the line-up is who they take on tour as backing musicians.  Lizzy Ellision can certainly belt out the vocals on "The Queen's Rebuke / The Crossing" and it will never not be amusing watching Colin stomp around stage like he's playing guitar in a heavy metal band for that one

So that was Moen up there??

Man, he is just wasted on this band… guy is a beast of a drummer. Check him out on Boston Spaceships!!! It’s like having Keith Moon and tying one arm behind his back!!

Echo and the Bunnymen did not. Ian was just too sick…I think they should have postponed but can imagine all the problems with that….the band sounded great but the lead singer’s voice is such a distinctive part of show that without it

I couldn't agree more. I left after the first set. It was just getting depressing. I didn't want to have him struggle through "The Killing Moon" and "Ocean Rain". The band was fine. "Over the Wall" was great, but the whole evening felt very off to me.

That's a bummer. I heard his voice has been declining over the years.  But to be sick on top of that must've been hard to listen to.

Seems like Ian getting sick on tour is regular occurrence these days, at least in the US.

I thought his voice was in poor shape in 2011 when they were out doing  Crocodiles & Heaven Up Here live.  I also remember Ian getting snippy, because they were doing the albums as they were released in the UK, thus Do It Clean wasn't played until the encore.

What is Ian’s problem with Do it clean? Hasn’t performed it live since 2019!

Man, his voice last night was completely flat and no power. I would have been embarrassed to not postpone the show….

Am done with Echo live.

I was trying to figure out if “Do It Clean” was a b-side added to the later released US version…   

Learn something new everyday via Wikipedia

"Do It Clean" and "Read It in Books", were included on the cassette but were initially omitted from the LP version of the album because the managing director of Warner Bros., Rob Dickins, mistakenly thought that they contained obscenities.

So “Read It In Books” not included in that albums tour…

Good show by Sierra Ferrell at the Club last night. No doubt she will be Anthem'd next time. Grateful I got to see her five times before then. Her new sound is more electric than her previous shows, which I'm not a huge fan of. And I'm definitely not a fan of grills, on anyone. Especially not on otherwise pretty people.

The opener Jake Kohn, was 40 minutes of a just turned 17 year old (shouldn't he be in school rather than on tour?) with nice hair sounding very constipated while banging on an acoustic guitar. At least he didn't have grills.

I saw one MAGA cap, no Biden caps.
