Dear Mr. Slater,
The Decemberists will require the following props and stage accoutrements for its upcoming tour:
  • Twelve oversized red Japanese lanterns
  • One 18'x26' ukiyo-e print depicting The Crane Wife
  • One Lisa Molinaro, complete with banjo, fiddle, keyboards, marimba, vocals, and pretty flowing hair
  • One hurdy-gurdy
  • One recording of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, preferably the one with Patick Stewart narrating
  • One pair of baby-sized noise-reducing headphones
  • One introduction from Kristian Foden-Vencil
  • Twelve case per diem of Orangina
  • One Dr. Herring's Brand Dirigible Balloon Repair Patch Kit
  • One copy, Obscure Jazz Jokes and Witty Palaver
I thank you for attending to this matter personally.

Kind Regards,
Colin Meloy
