Purity Ring @ SXSW 2012 (photo by SRGN)
Purity Ring, currently finishing a post-SXSW tour with Neon Indian in NC tonight, will open for Dirty Projectors at Celebrate Brooklyn on 7/10, as with Wye Oak. UPDATE: I'm told these openers are "not 100% confirmed". Tickets are still on sale. The Prospect Park show is still Dirty Projectors' only announced date.
If you're in DC, catch Purity Ring on Thursday at Red Palace with Ava Luna. Ava Luna's next currently scheduled Brooklyn show is at BAM for the National's "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" fest on 5/4 (single day tickets recently went on sale).
Wye Oak's only other announced show at the moment is the National's ATP in the UK in December.
