The American Museum of Natural History’s One Step Beyond series continues on Friday (1/20) in the Rose Center with a headlining DJ set by Dirty Projectors with support from DJ sets by Skinny Friedman and Import/Export and visuals by Glowing Pictures. Tickets are still available, though reportedly going super fast.
In other news, Bang on a Can are releasing a double album called Big Beautiful Dark and Scary on February 28 via Cantaloupe Music. The album features three pieces by Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth. In honor of Bang on a Can’s 25th anniversary, the album has been available for free download for the first 25 days of January. There’s only a few days left so grab it while you still can.
Dirty Projectors are also working on their own new album, which will be released this spring.
