The Dismemberment Plan @ Galaxy Hut, Virginia - Jan 15, 2011 (by Jeffrey Martin)
Dismemberment Plan

Michael Jackson would have to rise from the grave and release a new album as good as "Off the Wall" for another music story to generate as much breathless hype around these parts as the reunion of the Dismemberment Plan, the beloved, wildly inventive D.C. indie art-punk-funk quartet...

No one wept with joy that I saw, and a few 30-somethings groused that standing at concerts hurts more than it used to. But from the moment frontman Travis Morrison spoke the Plan's friendly battle cry - "We're the Dismemberment Plan, and we're from Washington, D.C." - the crowd seemed to ripple as one organism for the whole of the loose, 110-minute set. Pleading the flu, bassist Eric Axelson spent a good chunk of the show sitting down, but rallied to his feet for "Do the Standing Still," an indictment of too-cool-for-school, arms-folded show watchers. -[The Washington Post]

The Dismemberment Plan reunion tour is underway! After playing a small private show at Galaxy Hut in Arlignton, VA on 1/15 (pictured above), the band made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon followed by three hometown DC shows: first at the smaller Black Cat on Friday (1/21) followed by two at 9:30 Club (1/22, 1/23).

Last night the band played Philly. Tonight they're in Boston, and the band will make their NYC return on Saturday and Sunday with two sold-out shows at Webster Hall (UPDATE: back on sale).

All remaining tour dates, video of the two songs they played on Fallon, videos from DC including one that shows the stage PACKED with dancing crowd members for the encore, the Philly setlist and more below...

D Plan rules so hard. i can't comprehend seeing them at a place as small as The Galaxy Slut. am so lookin forward to terminal 5.

i remember seeing them play my school music festival in '01, and Travis threw his guitar on the ground and started beating it with his belt halfway through one of the songs. it seemed very fitting at the time.

i remember when music made sense to me. that was a simpler time.

if a band does a farewell tour, they should never play live again.
