Dirty Projectors, Celebrate Brooklyn! 7/10/2012
Dirty Projectors

It was a gorgeous evening in Prospect Park last night for one of the more anticipated Celebrate Brooklyn! concerts of the season: Dirty Projectors, Wye Oak and Purity Ring. Having just played the much more intimate Music Hall of Williamsburg the night before, David Longstreth and company peformed basically the same set at Prospect Park, just with the song order switched up a little. Setlist is below. Despite opening the show with her band and having sung with them recently (like on Jimmy Fallon), Jenn Wasner from Wye Oak did not join DP this time at Prospect Park, but Olga Bell did a great job completing the trio of female voices, from behind her keyboard stage right where she stayed all night.

Even though they are playing bigger and bigger places, Wye Oak remain a duo and were great as usual. Jenn and Andy Stack wrote some new songs for the tour, and told the crowd they were really excited to be touring with Dirty Projectors. There was a whole lot of Mutual Appreciation Society happening onstage throughout the night, actually.

Purity Ring, also still a duo, seemed to impress the crowd with their early 7PM set. Corin Roderick has retired the plumber's acid trip instrument he was using last year (like at our CMJ-week day party) in favor a baroque arrangement of flower lights that lit up and triggered xylophone/marimba sounds when struck. (It probably looks really cool when in a fully dark envoirnment.) Also: they were selling their new album, Shrines, at the merch table that doesn't actually hit stores for two more weeks. So look for that if you're going to see them before July 24.

Purity Ring will be back in NYC on their record's release date, July 24 for an in-the-round show at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/13) at noon. It's $15 for a ticket or $25 for a ticket plus a copy of Shrines. If you order tickets through their website, you get a limited edition screenprint poster as well. They've also got a new video out for album track, "Fineshrine," which you can watch below, along with an updated list of Purity Ring tour dates, and more pictures from last night's Prospect Park show.

LOL "Jenn Wasner from Wye Oak did not join in with a DP this time at Prospect Park, but Olga Bell did a great blow job"

If DP happens, brooklynvegan is there to cover it.

Dear Amanda: please sneak in even more photos of girls in the crowd you think are cute (completely serious here).

Purity Ring was great, would love to see them in a smaller venue with people who dance.

I've never seen so many people eat salad at a concert.

I don't know, I kind of liked it.

I was thinking "hey, I'm in the neighborhood, and I've always had good luck scalping out front, why not?" but then I heard whatever God-forsaken opener was playing when I walked by and said "fuck this noise, I'd rather hear the cats having sex in the alleyway behind my building", so I went to get a burger and chill instead.

"last night for one of the more anticipated Celebrate Brooklyn! concerts of the season"

Quite clear that you are a total shiller for this crappy band but do you realize how stupid you sound when you write something like that. The show was not even close to being sold out. It would seem, except for a small minority, there was very little anticipation for this show

purity ring - what the fuck was that. The songs seemed cool but the performance was BORING. NOT a good outdoor venue band.

I enjoyed the show, but can see how the Dirty Projectors aren't for everybody. Hard to categorize their music, but prog is in there somewhere. Wye Oak was really good. Purity Ring was OK I guess.

Was up close and guessing that if Amber and David are an item, she shouldn't ever leave him alone with Olga. If he's straight, he's gonna want to see the smile Olga was beaming at him up close and personal. Or maybe I'm just dirty projecting.

Any body know the set lists for the other bands?

2:43 thinks he's being clever. Oh, you silly little puppy .... better to stick to the "but I really want to be your friend" schtick.

I never understand why anyone would ever name their child Olga.

I'm not sure who I'd rather tag first; Amber or Kickball Katy..

I had an amazing time. The show was wonderful. Prices were good. The crowd was super kind. This group of commenters, though, what a bunch of assholes.

The concert was amazing. DP killed it, as usual. All the new stuff sounded great, and it is always nice knowing every song by heart when you go to a show!

Congratulations for posting such a useful weblog. Your blog isn’t only informative but also very artistic too. There normally are very couple of individuals who can write not so simple articles that creatively. Keep up the great work !!
