Photos: The Decemberists w/ The Head and the Heart @ Charlottesville 8/3/11

The Head and the Heart killed it as openers. These guys will be hitting VA several times this fall as headliners so keep an eye on Concert Pulse for a show near you. The Decemberists performed one of the more entertaining shows I have ever seen. Colin Meloy had his band laying on the stage, playing somber notes, while the crowd crouched in anticipation of the explosion. A few songs later, the entire crowd was swaying with the motion of the ocean and singing along at full pitch. Talk about stage presence; wild, unadulterated fun. This is Why We Fight and Won’t Want For Love were beyond incredible.

Here are my shitty camera picks from The Decemberists w/ The Head and the Heart @ the Charlottesville Pavilion in Virginia. I really need to start bringing my real camera to shows. For now, these will have to do.
