Are you a Death Cab for Cutie fan? Will you be attending Thursday night's concert at ?
The band's Chris Walla has characterized its sixth studio album, Narrow Stairs, as "having teeth." Band promoters say the album doesn't try to recreaate the success of hit songs such as "Soul Meets Body" or 'I Will Follow You Into the Dark," but has instead crafted an ambitious and varied album that refuses to pander.
The band formed in Bellingham, WA a decade ago. The members spent much of 2006 in a turbulent tour cycle surrounding its RIAA platinum, Grammy-nominatd album Plans. They took a break in the start of 2007. Frontman Ben Gibbard embarked on his first-ever solo tour; guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Chris Walla released a solo album and produced records for acts like Tegan And Sara; drummer Jason McGerr constructed his own recording studio, Two Sticks; and bassist Nick Harmerc worked on various projects.
The concert Thursday starts promptly at 8 p.m. due to Alpharetta's noise ordinance laws, which restrict performers after 11 p.m. The doors open at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $38 for orchestra, general admission standing and reserved; and $32 for reserved.
