Death Cab for Cutie

When: Tue., Aug. 23 2011

"Death Cab for Cutie / Someone's going to make you pay your fare." So sang Neil Innes' pre-Monty Python outfit, the Bonzo Dog Band, back in 1967. Exactly 30 years later, Ben Gibbard repurposed the song title as the moniker for what's become one of indie-rock's most durable bands. Death Cab for Cutie's seventh album, Codes and Keys, was released in May and finds the group toning down the guitars and upping the electronics, a bonus for fans of Gibbard's Postal Service side project. Catch them tonight at Red Rocks Amphitheatre (18300 W. Alameda Pkwy., Morrison, redrocksonline.com) for between $36.75 and $42.50. Showtime is 7:30, with Scotland's Frightened Rabbit doing theopening honors. — Bill Forman
