I just got word from the Old Mill District that the Memorial Day Weekend music schedule got a big boost today with the announcement that The Decemberists are playing the Les Schwab Amphitheater on May 29, along with openers Rodrigo y Gabriella.

As you probably already know, the Portland-based Decemberists have been getting a ton of press lately thanks to their incredible new disc, The King is Dead, a pleasant turn back toward the band's rootsy beginnings. If you live in Bend and listen to the radio, you've probably heard "Down By the Water" on a daily basis for the past couple of months. And that's good...the song is rad, and the album has become my early favorite for 2011's best disc.

Joining Colin Meloy and company on stage on May 29 is Rodrigo y Gabriella, a wonderfully unique acoustic guitar duo that jams out wizardly compositions that are closer to rock than classical.

Also, announced today by the Old Mill was that eclectic rock weirdos Ween will be making another return appearance on July 2. More on that later.

If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock.
