A critically acclaimed Seattle-based indie rock/emo band on Barsuk Records, currently consisting of Benjamin Gibbard (vocals/guitar), Nicholas Harmer (bass), Chris Walla (guitar/keyboards/vocals) and Michael Schorr (drums).

Discography: They're great fun to see live, as they tend to rock out a little more than on their intricate, moody recordings, and also inject a bit more humor into the proceedings. (Their cover of "Shake Your Booty" must be seen to be believed.) Those standing anywhere near the stage should be prepared to be sprayed by the veritable fountain of sweat that is Mr. Gibbard.

Death Cab for Cutie is an indie band from Bellingham, Washington, currently signed with Atlantic Records. They are: Ben Gibbard (vocals and guitar), Chris Walla (guitar and production), Nicholas Harmer (bass), and Jason McGerr (drums).


I think the first time I heard "them" was really the first time I heard Ben Gibbard. He was on some late-night talk show like Letterman or Conan O'Brien (for you kids and strange post-humans of the future, this was before he took over The Tonight Show). It must have been 2005, because I think he was there promoting Plans. It was just him and his guitar, singing I Will Follow You into the Dark. Anyone who has heard this song will probably know why I immediately liked him.
