Dirty Projectors at Skidmore

dirty projectors

Check it out: Dirty Projectors are playing a show at Skidmore April 13. Tickets are $20 -- they go on sale to the general public Monday (March 18) at noon. We're guessing this show will sell out.

As you probably know, Dirty Projectors are an experimental indie rock band -- or as the NYT described their music, "complicated, conceptual indie rock." They're big favorites of critics, along with all the accompanying Pitchforking and Portlandia-ing and "shooting something with Noah Baumbach."

Here's a clip of them playing on Conan in February.

The Skidmore show is in the Williamson Sports and Recreation Center. Doors at 8 pm / opener (it's Pulse, according to a Skidmore Unofficial comment) at 9 pm / Dirty Projectors at 10 pm. It's the first currently-announced stop in a new tour for the band.

This is huge. In January, Dirty Projectors played an incredible sold-out show at Carnegie Hall... and now we have them locally! If you haven't heard them before, start with the new album, Swing Lo Magellan - it's probably the most accessible and you'll have the songs stuck in your head all day.

Also: the Conan clip does noooot do their live show justice. Not sure what if Dave Longstreth was feeling 100% before that appearance or what, but their live show is so refined and perfected. I'm really hoping they play Beautiful Mother at Skidmore because hearing the vocal pinging in person is mindblowing.

can't wait!
