As we've already reported, the Decemberists are stopping by the Uptown on February 7. The band will be out supporting its new album, The King Is Dead, which doesn't drop in the United States until January 18. You can hear the entire album now, though, over at NPR. Click here to listen.
The band will be joined by Gillian Welch, another uniquely voiced songstress. (We reviewed her show in Omaha with Bright Eyes this summer. Read it here.) Mountain Man -- a woodsy, Bennington, Vermont-based group of three women -- opens, too.
