The Decemberists Are Playing Where?

Tonight, I am seeing the Decemberists play.

In the gym at my school.

Why are they playing here? I have no idea. It is the only show they are playing in the South on this tour.

It's going to be like Elvis in the 50s when he used to play gyms in small towns all over the South. It's also going to be the weirdest show I've even been at. Not only am I skeptical about the acoustics of the gym, but I will be at a show with all of my students and some of my colleagues. I don't exactly expect anything to happen, but the atmosphere will be very strange.

I'm sure not complaining though! This will be the only thing happening in Georgetown all year.
