decemberists***Recommended Show of the Week***
Decemberists @ Henry Fonda, Glasshouse
There are two kinds of college students — jocks and nerds. Likewise there are two types of college bands. The Decemberists are a nerd band and they catch a lot of shit from jock bands. One of the jock bands even stole The Decemberist’s tour equipment earlier this year. Check out the Henry Fonda Tuesday or Wednesday or the Glasshouse on Friday and watch as The Decemberists fight back for their peace and self respect.
