In addition to regular $35 tickets they’ll be offering a $75 level that includes a limited-editing silk-screened poster by longtime Decemberist cohort (and frontman Colin Meloy’s wife), Carson Ellis.

The full details:

WHO: The Decemberists with special guest Michael Hurley
WHAT: A Benefit for Jessica Schleif: Hosted by Moe Bowstern
WHERE: Liberty Theater in Astoria, Oregon

In other news, the Decemberists are hard at work on their untitled follow-up to Hazards of Love, recording, as cryptically reported by Colin Meloy via Twitter, with REM’s Peter Buck. Said Meloy, “First official day of #6 practice; made Peter Buck play my fake-REM riffs and he didn’t seem perturbed. Nor litigious.”
