Decemberists at Beacon Theatre (more by Chris Gersbeck)

Though Colin Meloy and Jenny Conlee recently flexed their acting muscles (Portlandia videos below), we are happy to report that they aren't pulling a reverse Jared Leto and The Decemberists will return to the stage (they were meant for it). After a European tour in March and a U.S. tour in April, the band will start hitting festivals like Jazzfest and Sasquatch and the Celebrate Brooklyn series of shows!. They play the Prospect Park Bandshell on June 14th with Best Coast. Tickets for the 'benefit' go on AmEx presale Wednesday at noon (3/2), and regular sale on Friday.... will go on sale soon (they pushed it back a week I think).

The Brooklyn show happens five days after Best Coast play Bonnaroo. All tour dates for both bands, a Best Coast vs. Nardwuar video & more, below...
