Death Cab is Going on Tour with a Full Orchestra

Posted on the 19 January 2012 by Thewildhoneypie @thewildhoneypie


News like this makes my day. One of my absolute favorite bands, Washington-natives Death Cab for Cutie (@dcfc), are going on tour this spring with stops slated in New York, Maryland, Texas, and beyond. The band was last in our fair city this past summer for a breathtaking show at the Williamsburg Waterfront, and yet, I’m somehow more excited to see them at the famed Beacon Theatre in Manhattan. Oh, and did I mention they’re visiting with a full orchestra! This isn’t the first foray into the indie music world for San Fran’s Magik*Magik Orchestra. They have previously collaborated with not only The Dodos and The Walkmen, but also Mike Patton, and John Vanderslice. 

Watch out for the airing of their Live From The Artist’s Den, filmed in the Brooklyn Museum, on PBS on February 17th.  See their brand new video for “Underneath the Sycamore” below.
