Dirty Projectors at Bowery Ballroom in 2009 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Dirty Projectors

As mentioned many times, Dirty Projectors will play Prospect Park on July 10 with Purity Ring and Wye Oak. Tickets for that show are still available, but if you'd prefer to catch Dirty Projectors in a much smaller venue, they've just announced that they'll play Music Hall of Williamsburg one day earlier (7/9). Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/22) at noon. No openers for this show have been announced yet.

If you missed it, Dirty Projectors recently dropped "Dance for You," another track off their upcoming LP, Swing Lo Magellan, which comes out the same day as their Prospect Park show (7/10).

Speaking of Wye Oak, they'll also play their own NYC area show before Prospect Park on July 5 at The Space in Hamden, CT with Other Colors. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Updated dates are listed below...

This is along the lines of the Metric show, in that the thinking was "Hey, our general NYC-area show isn't selling well so let's add a small gig so that people get to feel excluded from something."

How is Connecticut a NYC-area show?

"How is Connecticut a NYC-area show?" Many spots in CT are closer than other "NYC-area" places (Hamptons, Atlantic City, etc.)

That spot isn't.

@1235 i don't think anyone was excluded from that metric show. venue was empty until 15 minutes before they took the stage.

I had a really nice and expensive projector once, and had it projecting these cool images at my house the other day... But once all my friends came over and started drinking, my house turned into a wild party and some hummus landed right on the lens. It made this weird black shadow on the screen that looked like the profile of a labanese man with a large mustache. It was rather prophetic, but also a drag to have a dirty projector. That is all.

"venue was empty until 15 minutes before they took the stage."

and there was still plenty of room to move around after they took the stage

Sat through two songs at a show at black cat in dc a couple years back and for the first and only time in my life walked the fuck out.
