The other day I joined a fan club – a real fan club. I didn’t just “Like” a group on Facebook, I entered my credit card information online, anxiously awaited the delivery then ripped open the small brown box that contained my Codes and Keys mug along with my membership card. I felt like Ralphie receiving his Little Orphan Annie decoder ring (without the crummy commercial letdown in the end). I’m now a DCFC Union member.
Hot on the heels of the release of this latest album, Codes and Keys, Death Cab for Cutie will be playing Rogers Arena Friday, October 21, 2011 with guests, The Hold Steady.
John first introduced me to the brilliance of Death Cab’s Ben Gibbard about a year after the release of Transatlanticism and I was hooked. I scooped up everything I could find from his solo projects, The Postal Service, and the rest of the Death Cab for Cutie discography.
It’s the music, it’s the lyrics, it’s his hauntingly sweet voice that sang “Such Great Heights” at the end of our wedding ceremony. Whether you have the same emotional attachment to the music as I do or you simply enjoy the moving melodies, you’ll want to check out this show — they are fantastic live. Tickets are currently on sale from Live Nation starting at $37.45 to $66.15.
