Our Pick for the Weekend: The Decemberists Rock With an Orchestra

Say you were to mix one witty, literate, and catchy indie band with a full classical orchestra—what would you get? We can’t say for sure what the results will be, but you can find out this Saturday at Merriweather Post Pavilion when the Decemberists take the stage backed by the Baltimore Symphony. The Decemberists put on an energetic and involved live show, and the addition of an orchestra should take their performance to the next level. Tickets ($40-$75) are still available for the show, which starts at 8 pm.

This, plus much more, like Bastille Day events, art, and a paper party, are going on this weekend. Get the scoop in our Where & When Weekend column.
