Dirty Projectors

Dirty Projectors were on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night where they premiered a new song called “When the World Comes to an End.” Before that, they performed acoustically backstage. That earlier part wasn’t aired on TV, but ?uestlove, a member of Jimmy’s house band The Roots, was there recording with his iPhone (see above), and posted a video to his Twitter where he wrote, “Man. Dirty Projectors came into our room and demonstrated their awesomeness. How cool is it for them to do this?”. He then Tweeted it again with the message, “dirty projectors really became a fav of mine after today” (both of those notes came an hour or two after the Tweet quoted at the very top of this post). Both videos below.

?uestlove, in addition to appearing on Fallon like he does every day, will be playing tonight (9/29) at the free Wizard of Oz show/screening in Central Park (with Jennifer Hudson and others). Then, as you can hear him tell DP in the below video, the Roots play Thursday night (10/1) at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn. Tickets are still on sale

Dirty Projectors are playing, what we now know is a short four-song set, at the New Yorker Fest’s “Bands from the County of Kings” show at the Bell House on Friday, October 16th. Also on the bill are House of Ladosha, Jubilee and Liturgy. Tickets are still on sale.

Dirty Projectors then go out on tour from the end of October through most of November. It ends with four full NYC shows on 11/18-11/22 (with no show on the 20th). Recent 4AD signee tUnE yArDs has been added as opener to all of those shows, and to the entire last two weeks of their tour. She (tUnE) also has more gigs before then, including non-NYC shows with Sunset Rubdown and a Brooklyn show on October 6th at Union Hall with Dragons of Zynth.

All videos and tour dates are below…
