It’s been a few years since critically acclaimed indie-rockers The Decemberists rolled into the Idaho Botanical Garden’s Outlaw Field. Will the Portland group’s wintry name be enough to hold off our recent run of crazy-hot temperatures? The weatherman thinks so, which means fans are in for a lovely night of whimsy, eccentricity and folk influences. And a reminder, of course, that “This is Why We Fight.”
6:30 p.m. July 15, Idaho Botanical Garden, 2355 N. Penitentiary Road, Boise. $36. TicketWeb. Opening: Calexico.
