Dirty Projectors @ Sasquatch Fest
Dirty Projectors have added the rest of the tour dates around their September 11th Terminal 5 show (Tickets are still on sale for that). The band covers a lot of ground on the short tour, going back to Seattle by the end of September. They just played the Seattle-area, Sasquatch Festival's second day (5/30). The pictures here are from that (Day one pictures from the same fest are here).
Between playing for David Byrne and DJing with Bjork, the band found time to cut a cover of Bob Dylan's "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine" for Levi's, who will give you the song for your e-mail address. Don't expect too many fireworks - their version is a pretty straightforward, dorm-room take on the song. Levi's is also giving away songs by Nas, The Swell Season, and She & Him (The Shins, Passion Pit, and The Kills all have free tracks coming up).
Dirty Projectors' Terminal 5 show is being opened by Owen Pallett, who opens a few others on the tour too. Sub Pop garage-pop Happy Birthday and electro-party rapper Dominique Young Unique (whose video for single "Show My Ass" is below) open others. Owen goes on to tour with the National.
More Sasquatch pictures and videos (which capture the crowd singing "Happy Birthday" to Amber's dad, and some inspired "Stillness" dance moves) and all tour dates are below...
