We are fortunate here in Seattle to have a long lineage of fantastic artists, who not only find their footing in the Northwest before taking off, but also stick around long after. Death Cab for Cutie are one of them, and have already had the good grace to dig deep into their back catalog with a setlist earlier this year at the Paramount that made old fans salivate, cry, hug one another, etc... but a fresh chat with Ben Gibbard reveals an even wilder and more exciting idea, here's an excerpt from Charles Cross' interview with the man:
Gibbard jokes that after seeing the Cure play its entire first three albums last fall, he's considered playing all of Death Cab's early work.
"We could take up a residency at the Showbox," he says, only half in jest.
Ok, this needs to happen. Who do we call? How do we set it up? Not only is the Showbox Market one of the best intimate spaces in Seattle, but seeing a band of DCFC's reach tear through an album or two a night of tracks that made their way from Bellingham bedrooms to Northwest anthems would be a truly once in a lifetime week of shows. Anyone else on board? Tell us on Facebook.
