After five years away, the Shins returned in 2012 with James Mercer as the one constant; but thanks to a new album (Port of Morrow) and extensive touring, the band has re-established itself as an indie rock titan. Their September show sold out the Paramount—tickets were going for twice their face value on StubHub—and now local radio station 107.7 The End is bringing the Northwest favorites back for its 'Twas the Night After Deck show on December 5. Here's the sweet part: It's at Showbox at the Market (an incredibly intimate venue for this big a band) and tickets are only $13. It's a safe bet to say this show will sell out. In minutes.
To get a leg up on the ticket-buying competition, presale info will go out via 107.7's Endmail newsletter. You can sign up here. Friday's sale starts at noon at showboxonline.com.
