Dirty Projectors

As those keeping count already know, Dirty Projectors played four NYC shows in November with Tune-Yards. Two were at Bowery Ballroom. Two were at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The final one featured two very special guests, one of which was The Roots, who, members of the Dirty Projectors then played with again on Fallon the night before Thanksgiving.

We had pictures/reviews from three of the four shows: Bowery, MHOW, MHOW (DP & TY), Bowery (DP & TY). The missing "DP" pics from MHOW are in this post.

As previously noted, Dirty Projectors also have another NYC show coming up, but in much fancier quarters. Tickets are still on sale for the February 19th show at Lincoln Center's Allen Room.

And it ends up that will be only one of two extra special shows the Brooklyn band plays in NYC that month. The other, though it will only be a short set, will happen exactly a week later...

Tibet House US will hold its 20th Annual Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall on Friday, February 26th. Philip Glass, the concert's Artistic Director, has once again brought together an amazing, original line-up of contemporary artists.

For the past twenty years at Carnegie Hall, the annual concert has assembled some of the biggest names in music and offers audiences a mix of unprecedented musical collaborations and solo offerings. And 2010 will be no exception!

Concert tickets are $35 to $85 and can be purchased by calling Carnegie Charge at 212.247.7800 or in person at the Carnegie Hall Box Office (57th Street and Seventh Avenue).

They haven't actually announced any of the lineup yet (besides Philip Glass), but Dirty Projectors are playing it. Vampire Weekend participated in the 2009 show.

One day later (2/27), the Dirty Projectors will play the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles with the LA Philharmonic. Tickets are on sale.

Anyone else tired of looking at the dude in this band?

No. People are tired of your comments. Find a hobby or call your mom.

I'm kinda tired of looking at him.

Call my mom? Is that suppose to be a zinger? Fail. I do call my mom, all the time. She's tired of this clown too.

I don't understand the hype around this band, pretty underwhelming to my ears. To each their own, though.

Dirty Projectors with the LA Phil at Disney Hall is going to be ridiculous. The sound in that venue is perfect.

i'll call your mom and bang her in the ass while listening to Bitte Orca on repeat.

I would never share my hummus with these guys. ever.

I'm tired of listening to his songs. They're nothing close to say, an Elliot Smith song Elliot's worst song is better than their best song. And all the pretension with the upright bass, etc, is a bit much for what they actually play.

Orchestras must really be hurting these days. Every goddam indie band thinks they deserve an orchestra for their "art" music. Give me a break already. You're not Burt Bacharach guys and gals. Christ

play a song without the capo, you gays. Especially damning on the electric guitar. Sing lower, or higher. Unless the girl NEEDS the capo.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2009 3:08 PM

Carnegie Hall? Lincoln Center? those venues are really slumming it up lately.

capos are also used to allow hard to finger open chords in different keys. it doesn't have to be about the key of the singers. its a staple of folk guitar playing.

and when you arent the rolling stones and have 8 guitars already in different open keys that you can trade out every song, it expands the range ouf your 1 guitar

Especially helpful on the electric guitar.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2009 3:21 PM

so you agree, they make the guitar easier to play, expecially in standard tuning?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2009 3:28 PM

and I suppose Dirty Projectors play folk music?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2009 3:31 PM

With an orchestra? I mean, the lyrics and tunes aren't very sophisticated here folks. Give me a break

Jeremy Jay is supporting in Tokyo. Apparently, he's moved to Papan and got married to a girl who shits sweaters.
