Death Cab for Cutie

Ben Gibbard and Death Cab for Cutie are trying something different for a 2012 tour that kicked off Tuesday in Colorado, performing with the eight members of the Magik*Magik Orchestra -- six violins and two cellos.

That's the same group that appeared with Death Cab in its "Storytellers" episode on VH1, and helped add a deeper texture to last year's Codes and Keys. Still, Magik*Magik -- which has previously worked with Mike Patton, John Vanderslice, the Walkmen and the Dodos -- have become the principal storyline for a tour that [hits Beacon Theater in NYC three nights in a row this weekend].

The interesting part for concertgoers will be hearing some of the Death Cab's back catalog, including favorites like "Soul Meets Body," in this format. Gibbard admitted a little apprehension -- OK, a lot...

"It's a little terrifying," Gibbard tells HeyReverb. "There are so many variables. The entire show is a series of variables, for the first time in a long time. And that's a good thing. The first handful of shows, at least from our end, will be like walking through quicksand." [Something Else]

You saw last night's setlist. Check out more pictures from Friday's show at Beacon Theater, below...
