When one Seattle show was announced for The Long Winters performing When I Pretend to Fall in its entirety, one could only hope that this seemed like such a good idea that it wouldn't just remain this one show. Luckily, more shows have been added, but some don't seem to have made the front page yet, so here's a list of the Pretend to Fall shows:
10/18 New York NY @ Bowery Ballroom - sold out
11/08 Seattle WA @ Neptune Theatre
12/04 Los Angeles CA @ Bootleg Theater
12/05 San Francisco CA @ The Independent
12/07 Portland OR @ Star Theater
In between reciting quotes from the video for Blue Diamonds ("Vous voulez un peu de crème glacée? Elle est très bonne.") and being in a limbo which original WIPFT band member to be most excited about to join the Long Winters on stage once more, we'll keep it short, so that you can get tickets for these shows before they're sold out.

The Long Winters newsdesk is slowly working its way through all the news that is flooding the desks. So please forgive us for combining two very different shows in one go.
First up, John Roderick will once again join Wesley Stace, aka John Wesley Harding, for his Cabinet of Wonders, a vaudeville night of music and literature. John will appear at six of the shows in October and November, which will take him to Chicago, Minneapolis, Iowa City, Grinnell IA (!), San Francisco and Santa Barbara. After this we will have no more complaining that John never performs in Iowa - agreed?
Then, in January John will join Colin Meloy on four West Coast shows of his solo tour. Slightly disappointingly, the tour doesn't seem to have a name, like Decemberists tours always do, but suggestions are welcome. Tickets are on sale already, so don't wait too long.
