Death Cab for Cutie will sing two “classic baseball” songs at today’s Mariners opening day festivities at Safeco Field. Randy Johnson, the best pitcher in team history, will throw out the first pitch. If you’re like me and aren’t going to be at Safeco, you can watch the event live on the Mariners website, starting at 3pm PST. The pic was swiped from the Mariner’s twitter stream. Yes, that is John Roderick of The Long Winters standing in for Chris Walla, at least at the sound check.
Also new to fans this year: A new menu, including more options for vegans and vegetarians like myself and the Death Cab boys. A new stand called “The Natural,” in section 132, will feature vegetarian, vegan, and organic foods. Here’s to fresh fruit, small footprints, and going vegetarian!
