The Decemberists ended their Beacon run w/ special guest Shara Worden (who plays Lincoln Center tonight)

the marquee on Night Two (more by Chris Gersbeck)

Shara Worden made a surprise appearance at last night’s Decemberists show, the last of three Beacon Theatre shows for the Portland band who are currently #1 on the Billboard chart (as Colin Meloy acknowledged briefly at the show). Meloy also…

“…said that, because of the snow outside, they would be playing a “wintery mx” of songs, book-ended by two songs about summer. In between there were tracks from albums The Crane Wife, The Hazards of Love and the afore-mentioned best-selling The King is Dead. Each song was accompanied by a change in colour of the stage backdrop, which is also the cover of their latest album. They also roped in musicians from “The Decemberists Family ” like Shara Worden (who guests on The Wanting Comes in Waves/Repaid) and Sara Watkins – such captivating singers that I want to hear more of.” [Miss N-Tertaiment]

You can hear more of Sharon Worden at Lincoln Center tonight (1/27), part of the American Songbook Series. You can hear more of Decemberists opener Wye Oak tonight at Rock Shop (if you have a way in) before they continue on the road with the Decemberists. Last night’s Decemberists setlist and videos from the show are below…
