I have been listening to the Decemberists to get ready for the concert this week. Picaresque is still my favorite album. The word picaresque is taken from a form of satirical prose originating in Spain, depicting realistically and often humorously the adventures of a low-born, roguish hero living by his/her wits in a corrupt society.
