Dirty Projectors

After a string of festival dates, and shows in DC and Philly, Dirty Projectors returned to their native NYC to headline the cavernous halls of Terminal 5 with Owen Pallett on Saturday night (9/11)…

Pallett‘s set began after he announced (and tweeted!) that he was having a set list crisis. The set was decidedly split into two acts. First came his solo looping and building detailed architectural songs using just violin and MIDI keyboard… For the second half, Thomas Gill came to the stage, providing multi-instrumental layers on top of the looped violin textures. From bopping auxiliary drums on “The Great Elsewhere,” to shredding guitar on “Many Lives -> 49 MP.” …As amazing and obviously talented Pallett is on his own, the addition of a second member to the stage show keeps him from being considered too gimmicky or one trick-y.

… From the beginning of the [Dirty Projectors] set with the harmonic shrieks of “Fucked For Life,” and blasting strobe lights into the eyes of everyone in the crowd, it is easy to get sucked into how much of a powerful rock force these guys are and forget how weird these songs actually are. Catchy and rocked out to be sure. But when it comes down to it, these alien harmonies sung by Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian and Haley Dekle, along with Longstreth’s finger-mashing guitar licks, these are not songs that many bands selling out big rock venues could dream of writing. – [FreeWilliamsburg]

The show sold out a few hours before doors. Owen plays his last show with DP tonight, 9/13, in Boston, and then hits the road with The National.

The perfectly harmonized band (DP) is currently on the road through the end of September (with Happy Birthday and then Dominique Young Unique), but will be back in the tri-state area to play Madison Square Garden with Phoenix on 10/20 (tickets) before playing Fun Fun Fun Fest.
