    I have KEXP notifications set to all but wasn't notified of this liversteam. WTF, Youtube? I absolutely adore Ben Gibbard and Death Cab for Cutie is one of my all time favorite bands, so never finding out about this stream would have really sucked... but now I have an hour of hauntingly beautiful music to look forward to, so thanks for posting this, @trojanhorse!

      It was great. He really killed 405. I won't spoil any more of the set list.

    Unfortunately, the stream appears to have been taken down today.

        Neither do I. You can download the video directly using Youtube-DL via the commandline (If you prefer GUIs, there are also several GUI clients for YDL). Sadly, the highest quality of the FB video...

        Sadly, the highest quality of the FB video is only 720p, while the original Youtube version was 1080p.
