The Decemberists Announce Presale for Fall Tour

The DecemberistsProving that they are the nicest band in the world, the Decemberists announced that they will be doing a presale of tickets for their upcoming Rout of the Patagons Tour. The tour, which coincides with the release of the band's major label debut, The Crane Wife, kicks off in hometown Portland with two dates at the Crystal Ballroom, Oct. 17 and 18.

Chris Funk, the band's appropriately-named multi-instrumentalist tells Local Cut that the fees the band will be charging are "way cheaper than Ticketmaster" (nice). Funk also says that the band will be giving $1 of the service charge from each ticket to the Ethos Music Center, a non-profit focused on offering music education to students whose music programs were cut for lack of funding (super-duper nice).
