The Decemberists play in Vicar St. in Dublin. It was such a good night- they brought the house down, playing a mix from old and new albums and ended with a mighty performance of the Mariner's Revenge Song (watch this it's long but fantastic!) which required lots of screaming on the audiences part as the whale ate the sailors. Lucky old UK - they get lots of shows and then they move on to Europe before heading back to the States. Being able to scream and jump and listen to some of your favourite music is very life affirming - a human need.
