Death Cab for Cutie Concert Will Be Webcast Live Tonight

At about 9:45 PM EST tonight, NPR.org will webcast Death Cab for Cutie's concert at Washington D.C.'s 9:30 Club. The webcast will be live. Death Cab is possibly expected to begin their set at the 9:30 Club at about 9:45 because they are trying to show that they have a naughty rebellious edge. I find that adorable! In its June '04 issue SPIN named these rapscallions one of 25 "rock underdogs", "critically adored artists" with the "pop potential" of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who may need "a little break" to "finally break out". (Actually they had to share the honour with The Postal Service. Way to hedge your bet there, SPIN!) The mag noted that "Death Cab for Cutie get mentioned on The OC a lot." As do most rock underdogs.

Previous concert performances webcast on NPR.org have been archived for your listening pleasure; the set by former underdogs Death Cab will no doubt be there not terribly long after the set. Artists whose concerts are archived there now include The White Stripes, My Morning Jacket, Secret Machines, Kings of Leon, Sigur Ros, David Gray, Bloc Party, The Decemberists, Interpol, and Wilco.

Someone saying they are 'underdogs' is ridiculous. SPIN magazine, huh? I think they need to hire someone like you...

Someone like me? Say, I'm a lot like me!

Thanks, v. :) It was June 2004 when they said it, but still... Spin said they were on the OC a lot. I think at that point it was silly to call them underdogs. Another underdog: the Shins Spin: "about four billion people saw their McDonald's ad, so there's gotta be some spillover." Then they're not underdogs! Silly...
