Decemberists to Play With Local Orchestras on Tour

In cool Decemberists news, Billboard reports that the band will play with local orchestras in select cities during their U.S. "The Crane Wife" tour.

This idea came from Johanna Rees, who has paired orchestras with Air, Dead Can Dance and Belle and Sebastian. Regarding her idea to put orchestras with the Decemberists, Rees has said:

"I was the liaison between the band and the orchestra folks, because they don't really know how the rock world works," Rees tells Billboard.com. "And if you're a fan, it's such a perfect band to put with an orchestra. Musically, they're just astounding."

I can easily envision the Decemberists' already slightly string-laden music paired with orchestral sounds, and I only wish San Francisco were on the list of cities where this is taking place. If you live in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago or Columbia, MD, however, check it out and tell me all about it!
