Recently, my brother and his wife raved about The Decemberists' live performances, so Luke and I had been keeping our eyes on their touring schedule. A few months ago, we noticed they would be performing in Brooklyn--and the tickets were a mere $35!
At last the day arrived. Luke and I made our way over to Prospect Park in Brooklyn to see them perform as part of the "Celebrate Brooklyn" summer festival.
When we hopped off the subway in Brooklyn, many gray storm clouds loomed in the distance. Just as we arrived at the park, the sky opened up, and it started to rain.
Still, the venue looked great!
We grabbed some brews at the watering hole and huddled under a tree to wait it out.
Thankfully, the rain let up, just in time for a phenomenal performance.
They really know how to get the crowd involved.
Colin Meloy concluded the show with two encore performances and a little crowd surfing! We were happy campers. Cannot wait to see them again.
