It seems as if Indie Rockers the Decemberists never stop working. Since there formation a mere five years ago in 2002, they have put out nearly as many full lengths (as many if you count the phenomenal “Tain EP”), they have performed orchestral renditions of their songs alongside the likes of the LA Philharmonic, and have embarked on more tours in this short period of time than any band that comes to mind.

Of course, once again, the Decemberists will be pushing the envelope this fall by embarking on yet another tour, with yet another twist. Their latest jaunt – dubbed "The Long and Short of It" launches October 28th in Chicago – they'll hit 13 cities, playing at least two nights in each market. The "Long of It" evenings will focus on the band's epic, progressive compositions, while the "Short of It" nights will highlight their more succinct, pop-leaning material.

Is it wise for a band to separate its strengths over a period of two different nights? Who knows, but you can find out any of the following dates:
