The Decemberists - "Traveling On" - Perfect Duluth Day

The Decemberists – “Traveling On”

Portland, Ore.-based indie rock band the Decemberists refer to Duluth in the song “Traveling On,” released in November on an EP of the same name.

At the 2:24 mark, these lyrics roll in.

Fawning fanfare
Nearly nowhere
Meet the new dauphin in Duluth
No one knows you
Nations loathe you
Please let me know when I can recuse myself if I choose

Feel free to note in the comments if you have knowledge of the most recent visit to Duluth by the eldest son of the King of France.
