Live Colin Meloy Solo Album Wednesday January 16, 2008

Filed under: Local,Spring! — Kayla @ 10:56 am




Oh heck yes.  So this is why they weren’t letting people record shows on the Colin Meloy sings Shirley Collins tour.  It comes out on Kill Rock Stars on April 8th and includes Decemberists, Tarkio, covers, witty banter, and two unreleased songs.  I saw the Portland show of that tour, it was the second concert I’d ever been to and still one of the best.  You might say I’m more than a little excited about this album and the ensuing solo tour in the spring.  Tracklist after the jump.
