Death Cab For Cutie (12/4/18)

This was my first show at the Agora after all their renovations have been completed!  It’s so much nicer...  Having seen Death Cab for Cutie at Nautica back in 2016, this show wasn’t a huge priority for me. Especially at such high ticket prices, however a fee free day put me over the edge. I’m guessing others did too, resulting in a sold out crowd!  Still, they sound good playing through all my favorites, which I’ve captured again in the video below. Scene review below.

Death Cab For Cutie  12 4 18

"Last night, in front of a tightly-packed sold-out crowd at the Agora, Gibbard made his fans wait for the song. But finally, for the start of the group's encore, he came back out alone with an acoustic guitar and gave everyone what they came to hear. The entire audience sang every word and teared up and held their cell phones high to record and hugged their friends. At one point near the end, Gibbard even had the crowd sing a chorus without him, to which they obliged.

'If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied/And illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs/If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks / Then I'll follow you into the dark.'

Of course, there were plenty of other tunes that people came to hear last night. Playing a nicely-tossed mix of classic and new, the band capitalized on its fresh album Thank You For Today with songs like 'When We Drive' and Gold Rush' while still satisfying fans with the oldies like the super emotional 'Title and Registration' and 'We Laugh Indoors.' Other fan favorites like 'I Will Possess Your Heart' and 'Black Sun' also pulled out huge reactions."
