The biggest benefit of subscribing to LA Observed is the satisfaction of helping the website thrive. But sometimes we also get free tickets to pass along. When they're offered, we do it transparently. So, courtesy of the L.A. Philharmonic, the first paid subscriber to email will receive two seats at the Saturday, July 7 performance of The Decemberists with the L.A. Phil at Hollywood Bowl. The seats are in section K1, the lowest area of bench seating in the center. It's the orchestral debut of The Decemberists, and there's more info on them at the link and after the jump.
From the flackage:
THE DECEMBERISTS include songwriter and frontman Colin Meloy, multi-instrumentalist Chris Funk, keyboardist Jenny Conlee, bassist Nate Query and drummer John Moen. The Portland band is known for their group dynamic that embraces experimentation even as it celebrates classic pop and folk forms with a little klezmer, Irish jig, sea chantey and progressive rock thrown in. Playing to sold-out tours throughout the nation, The Decemberists have attained widespread popular and critical acclaim, while maintaining an aesthetic all their own. Their most recent release, The Crane Wife, released by Capitol Records is the bandís first major label appearance.
