A few hours ago we told you all about the Decemberists' David Foster Wallace obsession, but we totally forgot to plug their two-night stand at Edgefield on August 25 & 26. Not only will the band be joined by not-too-shabby opening act Okkervil River, but rumor has it that these shows will be the band's last for sometime (possibly years) to come. Thanks to my keen web hacking skills—which I learned here—I broke into the band's email account (password: pantaloons) and secured some tickets to Friday's performance to giveaway on this very blog.

All week long we'll be parting with a pair tickets daily, and we'll start things of with The World's Greatest Decemberists' Crossword Puzzle™ (after the jump). First person to properly fill out the puzzle (or just email me the answers) will be the glorious winner. Good luck, nerds.

We have a winner. We'll post another contest tomorrow.

Hate puzzles? Or words? Just buy your tickets here.
