Just upstairs from The Current's broadcast and recording studios, Death Cab for Cutie performed a Microshow in the Forum at Minnesota Public Radio, hosted by Brian Oake and Jill Riley.

Three members of the band — Ben Gibbard, Dave Depper and Zac Rae — gathered in MPR's versatile performance space to perform for a live audience comprising those who had won tickets to the show through The Current's on-air and online giveaways to the event.

Death Cab for Cutie recently released Thank You For Today, and they performed two songs from that album, plus they dipped into their back catalogue to play a song each from Narrow Stairs (2008) and Transatlanticism (2003).

This Microshow is a hearty appetizer for the upcoming live webstream of Death Cab's concert from the Palace Theatre in St. Paul, Minn., happening Saturday, Oct. 6.

Listen to or watch the complete Microshow above.

Set List


"Gold Rush"
"Your Hurricane"
"Cath"
"Title and Registration"
The first two songs are from Death Cab for Cutie's 2018 album, Thank You For Today; songs three and four are from Narrow Stairs (2008) and Transatlanticism (2003), respectively. Transatlanticism is available on Barsuk Records; Narrow Stairs and Thank You For Today are available on Atlantic Records.

This MicroShow is sponsored by New Belgium Brewing Company.
