On Tuesday, March 24, Department of Eagles will premiere the video for "No One Does It Like You" at the MoMA, followed by a live show and a Q&A with video directors Patrick Daughters and Marcel Dzama, as part of the museum's PopRally series. Advanced tickets are
supposed to be online NOW ON SALE HERE.
Patrick Daughters, responsible for numerous music videos including Feist's "My Moon My Man" and "1234," and "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeah's (who are releasing new album It's Blitz! today 3/10), works with The Directors Bureau, who produced the video.
Costume and set designer for the video Dzama has been published by McSweeney's, and has done album art for Beck and The Weakerthans.
Half of Department of Eagles is Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear - the band who may or may not be playing the just-announced Dark Was The Night concert at Radio City on May 3rd. The busy Grizzly Bear also just announced a US tour (w/ 2 NYC dates), and, on February 26, played BAM with the Brooklyn Philharmonic.
Department of Eagles are also playing two shows at SXSW this year: an official showcase in a church on March 18th, and the Pitchfork party two days later. Daniel will be keeping especially busy in Austin because Grizzly Bear's itinerary includes two shows at SXSW too.
