The Decemberists, Shovels & Rope, Arrows Out 

When: Wed., June 3, 7:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $26-$36
Colin Meloy’s drama-club schtick once seemed like the work of a young man with something to prove. It now seems about as youthful as an orthopedic loafer. His long-standing, moderately beloved Portland band was always dorky, but their literary pretensions at least produced intricately detailed, grand songs. The new What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World lacks that precocious verve. Its folk rock is stripped down, its melodies maudlin. Meloy’s thesaurus is still trusty, at least. —Jeff Klingman
