The Decemberists Play 'This Is Why We Fight' Outdoors on 'Kimmel'


The Decemberists made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live's outdoor stage in Los Angeles yesterday. The band played a handful of songs, but this rendition of "This Is Why We Fight" from their new album The King Is Dead is was particularly strong. The band used to rely a lot on theatricality, but this performance is simple, straightforward and totally charming.
