Review: Death Cab for Cutie at Ellie Caulkins, with Magik*Magik Orchestra, 4/10/12


DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE @ ELLIE CAULKINS OPERA HOUSE | 4.10.12

Is there a science to picking a day to start a tour, or is it all some big random coincidence? Last night's Death Cab for Cutie show at the Ellie Caulkins was sold out, and it had been for a while, actually. This was the opening night of the band's spring jaunt around North America -- having recently returned from a string of shows in Australia, New Zealand and various Southeast Asian locales -- and while a Death Cab show is always a pretty big deal, this was something special.
