    And now, some sad news for the bookish indie rockers out there: The Decemberists have canceled the rest of their U.S. tour—more than a month of dates including a homecoming run of dates in Portland and Seattle that would have closed at the Moore Theatre on December 9. The continued health problems of an undisclosed band member are being blamed for the sudden change of plans—something opening act Laura Veirs must be a bit bummed about.

    "We need to return home so our friend can mend," the band said in a statement. "It saddens us to disappoint our fans. We hope everybody understands it is only because of an extreme situation that we had to cancel a tour we've all been excited about doing since the idea was originally hatched."
