Already known for its creative ambition, the hyperliterate and sweepingly melodic band The Decemberists has just made its most grandiose record yet: a narrative song-cycle called The Hazards of Love. Hear the band premiere the entire work live in concert at NPR Music's nighttime SXSW showcase. Originally recorded 18 March 2009 at Stubb's Bar-B-Q in Austin, Texas.
