Death Cab for Cutie

Tue., May 5, 7:30 p.m.
phone 313-471-3200

Oh Ben Gibbard, praised by so many as a hipster god. You started Death Cab for Cutie back in ’97 all by yourself, only expanding the group to a threesome after seeing your original cassette tape earn some serious praise. Then came records and more records, a track called “I Will Follow You into the Dark,” an album called Transatlanticism, and another band called the Postal Service. Sure, your new album, Kintsugi, isn’t doing so well, but we still love you. $30 - $45
