Happy birthday to meeeeeeee....

This just in: AWESOMEST DECEMBERISTS TOUR EVER!

With their latest jaunt - dubbed "The Long and Short of It" and launching October 28th in Chicago - they'll hit 13 cities, playing at least two nights in each market. "Long" evenings will focus on the band's epic, progressive compositions. "Short" nights (while no shorter in set length, we promise) will highlight their more succinct, pop-leaning material. Laura Veirs, who guests on The Decemberists' current album, The Crane Wife, will be the main supporting act.

Pre-sale starts tomorrow at noon. They're playing November 1 and 2, a Thursday and Friday, at a brand-new 3,000-person venue called Terminal 5. Looks like tickets are $30 each, but you get a $10 discount if you get tickets for both shows, which you have to do for the pre-sale anyway. I am SO TOTALLY THERE. Who's with me?
