Tonight's Concert Pick: Death Cab For Cutie at Tower Theatre - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

If any indie-pop act could win an award for being “Most Frequently Featured in Popular Culture,” Death Cab For Cutie would probably take the title. At first, it might seem surprising that an alt-rock band from Washington is highlighted so recurrently in mainstream media, but once your ears are exposed to the band’s catchy yet soothing sound, it’s easy to understand the appeal. Death Cab’s Grammy-nominated, emotive music has enhanced many profound scenes from popular dramas, including ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and NBC’s Parenthood, as well as numerous recent films. Not that receiving spotlight is a occurrence for the band; its music was often referenced and used in the teen soap opera The O.C. in the mid-2000’s. It’s clear that Death Cab For Cutie’s magnetism to pop-culture exposure is strong as ever. Death Cab For Cutie performs with Magik*Magik Orchestra and Low at 8 p.m. at Tower Theatre; tickets to the all-ages show are $40 – $45. —Lisa Henderson
