Death Cab For Cutie
Ben Gibbard and friends have a lot of catching up to do with Tampa Bay. Since Death Cab For Cutie’s last stop here in 2004 over at Masquerade
—which is now The Ritz Ybor—the band has released a plethora of albums, written “I Will Follow You Into The Dark,” and on Gibbard’s end, even worked with The Monkees on their last two albums, saying that having written “Me and Magdalena” for them was “the greatest honor of [his] career.”
Before heading on a co-headlining tour with The Postal Service—on which Death Cab will perform both Give Up
in their respective entireties, the group rolls into St. Pete with support from L.A-based indie rock duo Momma, which opened Snail Mail's Ybor show back in August.
Death Cab for Cutie's St. Petersburg show at Jannus Live on Jan. 31 is sold-out.
