This past week we went to see The Decemberists at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan. The Decemberists recently released a new album, The King is Dead, and NYC was their first stop on tour. We were extremely lucky to get tickets: not only did they add on TWO dates to their original one, but ALL THREE DATES sold out within hours.
The Beacon Theater is gorgeous. It is the sister theater to Radio City Music Hall and “brainchild” of Samuel “Roxy” Rothafe. I loved the grandiose, golden, lace-y procenium and the ever impressive lobby. It takes you back to a time when going to see entertainment was something to be respected. It’s strange to see people in jeans in this grand of a surrounding.
The Decemberists are absolutely one of our favorite bands of all time and they played our favorite song as an encore, The Mariners Revenge Song, which was surprising because its not one of their most famous. I will admit I teared up a bit when I caught on that that’s what they were going to play, when they were introducing the piece. I LOVE IT TOO MUCH!
The Decemberists have been known to have quite the nautical theme and influence, especially in their older albums. I decided to keep in the theme and wear this classic number, available in our Etsy Shop
What do you think? Do you like to dress to catch the theme of your favorite performers or do your own thang?
