The Decemberists: “V is for Victory” Benefit Concert in Portland 05/30

It's bene three years snce the last the show by The Decemberists. They will hit the stage on May 30 @ Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR, headlining a benefit for the Victory Academy:

(...) this is no ordinary band-reemergence. No: the band is kicking off their time out of suspended animation with a gala concert event entitled “V is for Victory,” a benefit show for Victory Academy, Oregon’s only full-time accredited school for kids on the autism spectrum. It’s to be held on May 30th at the Crystal Ballroom in sunny Portland, Oregon. Sallie Ford is opening. And in an effort to reacclimatize themselves to the new atmosphere of the outside world, they’ll be communing with their younger selves by playing Castaways and Cutouts, their seminal 2002 long-player debut, in its entirety. You heard that right, folks. They’ll even be playing “Cocoon.” We have it on good authority that they, as of press time, do not even remember how to play “Cocoon.” Of course, they’ll be playing a second sets of sentimental favorites as well. No one is expected to leave unsatisfied.
