Dirty Projectors @ The Troubadour, West Hollywood 7/8/09

After spending some much needed time recuperating after having their lives flipped over, Dave Longstreth’s troupe of mind benders have resumed the good work of spreading their Bitte opus to understandably packed houses. Last night’s sell-out hit our photographer Andrew Youssef as “one of the top shows of the year,” and as you know, dude sees a lot of shows. The merch table had cassettes, the setlist featured a mix of Orca, Rise Above, and New Attitude. Opening the night was a well received set from local instrumental crew What’s Up. But mostly this post is just a reminder that you should see Dirty Projectors live, soon and often.
