Death Cab for Cutie, ODESZA announce ‘Double Major’ scholarship concert in Bellingham

Just a few weeks before Western Washington University wraps its spring semester, a few of the Bellingham college’s most famous alumni are throwing a huge off-campus bash.

On Friday, Death Cab for Cutie and ODESZA announced a joint benefit concert on May 18 at Civic Stadium. Appropriately dubbed Double Major, the show aims to raise money for WWU’s Alumni Association Scholarship Endowment. Both the Ben Gibbard-led indie-rock titans and the big-shot dance duo got started during their respective times at the university and hinted at a possible Bellingham hookup yesterday on social media, posting photos of where they used to live. (Two years ago, Death Cab released a recording of its first acoustic show at a Bellingham house in 1997.)
