The Decemberists used to come through town all the time, but after they canceled their two-night stand in late 2007, it's been quite a while since they docked at these shores. If you discovered the band in the interim or if you abandoned them during that time check out my notes on the band's discography to witness how they acheived their operatic ambitions. Fellow Portlanders Blind Pilot will open the show, which costs $27 and begin some time after 7 p.m., when doors open at LC Pavilion, 405 Neil Ave. Avast!
