Death Cab for Cutie

“We’re Death Cab for Cutie from Seattle, Washington,” he had announced after a quick opener of three of their classics: “Bend to Squares,” “The New Year” and “Why’d You Want to Live Here.” “Thanks for coming out to this label showcase. We’re trying to get a record deal tonight.” Gibbard was clearly making a joke, but it also seemed like he’s actually nostalgic for the days before his band was signed to a major label and selling out small shows like this one in a matter of minutes. It’s hard not to be slightly cynical about this pose – the indie rocker professing to be horribly conflicted by his commercial success – but it was also a reminder about how much Gibbard’s life actually has changed since he started Death Cab in Bellingham, Washington in 1997.

Death Cab For Cutie returned to Bowery Ballroom (the first place I ever saw them play a bunch of years ago) on Wednesday (6/1) with The Lonely Forest as part of their ‘Underplay’ tour. They played a 26 song set (encore included) which consisted mainly of older material and about half of the recently released Codes and Keys. The full setlist is below.

If you weren’t able to get into the too-small venue, you can catch Death Cab with Frightened Rabbit at the much larger Williamsburg Waterfront on August 2, part of a larger tour for the two bands. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are still available.
