Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: The Decemberists Consider The Hazards Of Love

Indie folk-rock band The Decemberists perform "The Hazards of Love" at Rock the Garden 2009, Minneapolis. The song is characteristic of the group's ballads; in this case, the lyrics tell the story of a woman riding on horseback who comes upon a wounded fawn and tries to help the creature. The fawn transforms into a man, and they fall in love immediately and consummate their passion on the forest floor, the thistles providing a cushion.
