Forming in the late 90s’ comes the band Death Cab for Cutie. Originally a side project for frontman Ben Gibbard at the time… twenty so years later and the project has flourished into a well known modern group. Their unusual mixture of instrumentals and vocals proves for a smooth flow of music. This current tour is in support of their most recent release “Thank You For Today”. The record is blended beautifully. It offers such an easy and peaceful listening. Perfect for a car ride or a lazy day.
Which was exactly what I did driving to the concert. Rolling up the venue and seeing the concert go-ers lining up was truly exciting. As someone who normally goes to hard rock or metal shows, it was surely a change of pace and atmosphere. The audience ranged from those in high school all the way up to people in their fifties. DCFC is a band that appeals to all ages.
The opener for Death Cab was a band called “Lala Lala”. I was truly enjoying myself when they came on. The lead singer Lillie has a beautiful voice. If you’re looking for a band to kick back and listen to, I highly recommend you give them a chance.
Once when “Lala Lala” wrapped up, DCFC came on around twenty minutes later. They opened up with “I Dreamt We Spoke Again”, which is a perfect starter. The lights and music hit the mood just right. The show being outside, I was unsure whether or not the stage production would suit the outdoors, I was proven wrong. DCFC did an excellent job. The energy and performance were phenomenal. I’m sure thirteen-year-old self would be extremely pleased that I finally got to see one of her favorite bands from when she was in high school. If you ever have the chance and DCFC rolls around, definitely go see them. They put on a fantastic show.
