07.19.09 | Death Cab for Cutie | Marymoor Park

Hometown heroes Death Cab for Cutie have come a long way from their early days playing parties in the border town of Bellingham, WA. Now they sell-out two nights at large outdoor venues like Marymoor Park.

The evening was a stellar line up, with Ra Ra Riot and The New Pornographers supporting. I was able to slip in just in time to catch the last song of Ra Ra Riot's set, which was "Ghost Under Rocks". For more Ra Ra Riot coverage, see my review of their show a few months ago.

Next up was The New Pornographers who I was really excited to see. They started their set with "My Rights Versus Yours" which sounded great live with the syncopated tambourine.

And now the main event. Like true rockstars, they entered the stage after much anticipation. The first thing I noticed was how thin Ben had become! Gone were the glasses and boyish face. I suppose that is the price to pay for being engaged to Zooey Deschanel. Death Cab can do no wrong in my book. Below is their epic playlist for the evening.
