Decemberists to Rock with Barack on the Waterfront Sunday

The DecemberistsOh those sly Obama campaign managers. First they announce that Barack Obama will making an appearance on the waterfront this Sunday, setting into motion an inevitable RSVP frenzy. Now comes news that the Decemberists will perform in support of the increasingly presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee. But do they come out and say the Decemberists will be striking up its chords for the candidate? Not quite. Obama's site instead decided to test your name knowledge of the not-so-mysterious Capitol-signed act.

Join Barack Obama at a rally in Portland on Sunday, May 18th.

Sunday, May 18th, 2008
Doors Open: 12:30 p.m.

Special Guest Performance by: Colin Meloy, Chris Funk, Jenny Conlee, Nate Query, and John Moen

The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required, but an RSVP is strongly encouraged. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.

See those five names listed as giving a guest performance? Maybe they were trying to throw a fork in the road of the RSVP rush or something by not just coming out and saying "the Decemberists?" Well, it doesn't take a detective...

Anyway, if your heart aches to hear "Landlord's Daughter" or "After the Bombs" this Sunday, you should know that the program begins at 2:30 pm after doors open at 12:30pm. Part of me hopes the five-piece covers "Barack OBollywood":
