This is kind of an experiment, a kind of game day shout out. Who’s going to the show tonight? What do you want to hear? (I’ve got a half-cooked setlist going, but could use some suggestions).
I’d LOVE to hear “We’re streaming the show for free tonight!”
I'll be there! As for requests.... Shiny, Grace Cathedral Hill, and anything that will harken in spring.
Bandit Queen please!! This show is my birthday present, a big part of Suzapallooza 2022🥰. We have traipsed all over the country to see you and the D’s, never heard BQ in person. Thanks. Love this idea. Sue
Just asked my friend who I'm going with! They would love to hear California One/YBB and I would love to hear Lake Song!
*april 16! sorry...
Shiny, Wonder, Devils Elbow. Can’t wait
Missy and Heather and I will be there!! I'm stoked to hear something new! But would also love to hear a haunting solo rendition of Til The Waters?
Dracula’ Daughter !!!
Red Right Ankle and Shiny please!
I'd love to hear The Harrowed And The Haunted and Hurdles Even Here!
I’m not going tonight but I’ve never heard Cavalry Captain live and it’s my favorite song!
We'll be there! Can you do the Capybara song for my wife?
Also, any covers of stuff you've been listening to lately?
Would be cool to hear June Hymn, Sleepless, or Summersong
Red Right Ankle
Alas, I cannot attend the show as today is my 50th birthday party and I had been hinting for a year that somehow my family could finagle a private concert by the Decemberists! (Kidding not kidding) When I saw this show listed I knew there would be no surprise. Instead there will be a local 80s cover band who I’ve requested play plenty of REM. Colin your cover of Cuyahoga is always sublime! Or my favorite of your tunes forever and ever is Architect. Hope you’ll share the final set list with us! Have a great show. Looking forward to seeing you guys this summer at a few stops
The Apology Song in honor of my bicycle "Madeline"
Will enjoy anything you play, but a rousing rendition of The Rake’s Song would leave me cackling! Can’t wait for tonight!
I’ll be there with bells on! And as always, I request Devil’s Elbow! And Beaverton/Hillsboro friends, if you have kids and are looking for something to do with them earlier today, I’m hosting an Easter egg hunt at Cornell Estates retirement and assisted living. It’s free! Bring your littles! Egg hunt starts promptly at 1:30!l. We have face painting, a balloon artist, and an Easter Bunny!
In the 10+ shows I've been to, I've somehow managed to miss ever hearing Shiny. If you wanted to play that, I wouldn't mind...
Okay this kind of thread should be paid content! I am not going to the show, but wish I was! I am coming to the Bluebird Music Festival next week.
Colin, I traveled from the distant land of Albuquerque for your concert ahead of my birthday. I'd love to hear Architect/Dreams tonight. Can't wait!
I'll be there with my daughter. A Kinks cover would be fun!
Hey Colin! Will be at the show tonight... Could you do Sleepless?
My wife and I are coming down from Seattle tonight. I’m a sucker for I Don’t Mind, would love to hear it!
I’m so lucky to be able to attend tonight! I would love to hear The Wrong Year, A Beginning Song, Foregone, and Red Right Ankle.
I'll be there! I'd love to hear June Hymn, January Hymn and maybe the Rox in the Box/Blackleg Miner segue
We are looking forward to a lovely time at the show with you tonight. Anything you play will be great, but since you asked how about a Row Jimmy, Why Would I Now, or Cavalry Captain? Of course we’d love to hear anything new if you feel like it. See you tonight
Have to wait until Atlanta but second it for Cuyahoga or Row Jimmy.
Not gonna be there as I am in Texas, but I suggest Dracula’s Daughter. That should eat up a good 3 mins if you include it’s origin story!
May the show go well. Living on the east coast I will not be atending.
I am hesitant to give it up before the Boston show, but Sheepcrook and Black Dog
I will be there! Would love to hear a live version of Benjamin Franklin’s song and have always had a soft spot for Red Right Ankle. But if you do all three parts of Crane Wife, my heart will be especially full. Looking forward to it! (Hopefully you don’t have to deal with an eye infection this time. ;) )
I won’t be there, but I absolutely love that you are soliciting our opinions on this! If I was there, I’d want you to play Everything I Try To Do, Nothing Seems To Turn Out Right.
I always enjoyed the tour CD's that you put out during your solo shows. All the great covers from Sam Cooke/Morrissey/Shirley Collins/The Kinks. Any of those songs would be great, I particularly enjoy "Do You Remember Walter"
My wife has the same request always and forever for any of shows, "We Both Go Down Together" .
Can't wait for tonight!
Not going, wish I were, but I've always wanted to hear "The Infanta" live. Acoustic version would be amazing. Have fun everyone!
Thanks! It felt like the whole show was a gift!
Thank you for playing both of my requests! I was so excited when I realized the first song you were playing was CA1! Such a weird and a wonderful show! Though now my friend and I are wondering what wine you were drinking that was so good you poured a second glass?
Great show last night. I’m curious, you weren’t going to do Mariners, which was a hoot, but changed your mind. What had you intended to play?
Three for three! Thank you Colin.
No suggestions... just wish I was attending
Riverswim - the most underrated song the D's have crafted.
I won't be there, but you should do a Hold Steady cover!

Play something that you enjoy playing but you're not sure if anyone cares to hear. Take a chance! Regardless, looking forward to the show tonight.
I will most definitely be there! Probably too late to add song input, but Shankill Butchers or the solo version of The Mariner’s Revenge Song that you did at Topaz Farm would be awesome. Or Islands in the Stream. 😛
Any plans to play in London sometime?
Also for locals - I just checked and there are still a few seats available in the balcony.
I’ll be there! Any cover you like please. Oh, and maybe Rusalka
"Severed" at the Fox Theater in Oakland was absolutely the loudest thing I ever heard. Do with that what you will. Maybe tie it in with the great show "Severed" on AppleTV.
