Setlist: The Decemberists – 4/28/09 – Yale University

Great show. I managed to run into and make an ass of myself in front of Colin Meloy roughly 5 minutes before their set. I expected them to play way more off of Hazards of Love, but whatever, I’m probably gonna catch that tour anyway.

They were also way more fun than I expected, with unexpected surprises raging from chicken fights during “The Perfect Crime #2” to guitar duels during “The Chimbley Sweep.” Maybe it’s just because they hated the crowd, but whatever, I enjoyed it.
