Good music x good cause. We are always down with that combo.
The Decemberists will present "V Is for Victory," a benefit concert for Victory Academy, at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon. In their first headline concert appearance since August 2011, The Decemberists will perform their 2002 full-length debut, Castaways and Cutouts, in its entirety, plus a variety of other sentimental favorites.
Special guest Sallie Ford will open the show, which will begin at 8PM.
"Victory Academy [website] is an important place, a positive educational environment for kids on the autism spectrum," said Colin Meloy, frontman and songwriter for the Portland-based band. "In a public school system that is constantly failing its most vulnerable charges, we need more and better schools catering to the needs of autistic children. Victory is such a place. The Decemberists are proud and excited to do their part in raising money for their capital campaign to build a new school building."
Education is important. VERY!
Anyone in Portland plan to support this gig and its cause?
