Deradoorian @ Union Pool - 5/10/11
Deradoorian

Deradoorian aka Angel Deradoorian of Dirty Projectors played a show with Hiro Kone at Union Pool in Brooklyn Tuesday night (5/10)...

"Deradoorian has just one five-song EP to her credit thus far, 2009's entrancing Mind Raft, plus a split single from earlier this year and some stray tracks (apparently the Dirty Projectors have been busy?). But her sound has evolved, and she has a sharp trio that's headed to the Animal Collective-curated ATP in England in a few days. They took the stage and played "Moon," the circular, hypnotic song that closes Mind Raft, and this completely fucked me up. At the end of that EP, "Moon" somehow bears witness to the four songs that precede it, focusing their most affecting traits into one six-minute spell. It is an end song. What's it doing at the beginning of the set? But when the full band blew in at a dramatic moment halfway through the song, all complaints were forgotten." [Village Voice]
Deradoorian's Brooklyn setlist is below. Deradoorian play the AC ATP in Minehead on Sunday which is the same day Tony Conrad plays the UK shindig. For a second I thought that was a lot of last minute traveling for Tony, but then I remembered he's not actually playing the Table of the Elements Fest in NYC this weekend - they're just showing a video of a show he played in 1996.

Hiro Kone next plays a show at Cake Shop on June 4th, with (her old band) Effi Briest and Pillars and Tongues.

In barely related news, Dirty Projectors' & Animal Collective's Domino label-mate Cass McCombs is currently on the road and plays a tour-ending show at Bowery Ballroom tonight (5/12) with Jana Hunter. Tickets are still available.

Is this the venue from Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist where Are You Randy plays, much to the dismay of everyone else (save for one dude) expecting Where's Fluffy? If so, the Modern Weepers should have booked their show there. Also, Nick and Norah was a terrible movie.

Yea they totally ripped off Union Pool in that movie, but called it Brooklyn Pool is some shit. Terrible.

Since the show was at Union Pool the same night as other better shows, I'm assuming that maybe twenty people showed up for this. What percentage of that audience were members of the Dirty Projectors

Are the other two people in Angel's band related to her? A lot of resemblances there.

I'm pretty sure the drummer is her brother.
