The Decemberists Live at Mountain Park in Holyoke, Sunday, August 16th • 7:00 PM

The Decemberists' fifth album, The Hazards of Love, is the most ambitious and accomplished project to date from the Portland-based quintet of Colin Meloy, Chris Funk, Jenny Conlee, Nate Query, and John Moen—a full-length song cycle rooted in ancient language and imagery, yet entirely modern and accessible. The follow-up to the group’s 2006 breakthrough, The Crane Wife (which NPR listeners voted their favorite album of the year), The Hazards of Love solidifies the Decemberists’ standing as one of the most innovative and important creative forces in music today.

Tickets on sale this Friday, 6/19.
