Last Night: The Decemberists in New York + They Just Topped the Billboard Charts

It was basically the 500th time I saw The Decemberists last night, and definitely one of the best. Starting the show off with “California One”, I knew it was going to be special. The band played all over their catalog, making me remember how much I love this band. PS: The new album sounded amazing live.

Speaking of the new record, the band has the #1 album on the Billboard charts selling 93,000 copies. Their last album debuted with 19K, so that’s a big ass jump. PS: Of the 93,000 sold, 65% was digital and 3% vinyl.
