Today, The Decemberists announced the first leg of the “A Short Fazed Hovel” tour for 2009.  If you haven’t downloaded “Rake Song” yet, you are missing out! That song definitely rules.

The concerts will consist of two sets: one in which The Decemberists will perform the record, The Hazards of Love, in its entirety (joined onstage by the immeasurable talents of M’mes Becky Stark and Shara Worden), and another where they perform older material.

I will definitely be seeing them (again) at Bonnaroo.  Hopefully I’ll get another interview!

The Hazards of Love is out on Capitol Records on March 24th.  Check out for more info.
