Listen to Death Cab for Cutie’s first show ever

Death Cab for Cutie are celebrating the 20th anniversary of being a band by releasing a rare audio recording of their first show. The set was recorded on a dictaphone at The Pacer House in Bellingham, Washington on November 22nd, 1997. Benjamin Gibbard wrote in a statement, “None of us thought we were starting a band nor did our ambitions for DCFC extend very far past this particular evening. We simply thought it would be fun to play these songs for our friends before moving on to other things.“ He concluded, “It was one of the greatest nights of my life at the time and its significance has only grown since.” Listen to the show below, and download it here. All proceeds will go to Seattle non-profit Aurora Commons.
