Department of Eagles @ Bell House, Oct. 6, 2008 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Department of Eagles

On Tuesday, March 24, Department of Eagles will premiere the video for "No One Does It Like You" at the MoMA, followed by a live show and a Q&A with video directors Patrick Daughters and Marcel Dzama, as part of the museum's PopRally series. Advanced tickets are supposed to be online NOW ON SALE HERE.

Patrick Daughters, responsible for numerous music videos including Feist's "My Moon My Man" and "1234," and "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeah's (who are releasing new album It's Blitz! today 3/10), works with The Directors Bureau, who produced the video.

Costume and set designer for the video Dzama has been published by McSweeney's, and has done album art for Beck and The Weakerthans.

Half of Department of Eagles is Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear - the band who may or may not be playing the just-announced Dark Was The Night concert at Radio City on May 3rd. The busy Grizzly Bear also just announced a US tour (w/ 2 NYC dates), and, on February 26, played BAM with the Brooklyn Philharmonic.

Department of Eagles are also playing two shows at SXSW this year: an official showcase in a church on March 18th, and the Pitchfork party two days later. Daniel will be keeping especially busy in Austin because Grizzly Bear's itinerary includes two shows at SXSW too.

Check out the MoMA event poster, a live video of "No One Does It Like You", and a recent interview Department of Eagles conducted with KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic, below...

Could someone tell me how much they were with fees? I guess I'll try Craigslist.

Posted by Cuse | March 10, 2009 2:32 PM

The show sold out in about two hours. It's being held in the larger downstairs theater, which holds about 410 people.

No way you sold more than 350 to the public...I bet half of it was for guestlists! I mean it took so long for them to sell out Bowery Ballroom...

no way they can sell out 400 tickets in under 2hrs

Yeah, and the Bowery seemed to have a huge guestlist. Really strange.

@Cuse

Tix were $14 each + $5.50 fee

Not sure if craigslist will work since it's all will call.

Dzama is HYUGE in the art word--prob. just as much interest from contemporary art people as people there because of the band (or beer).
