Dirty Projectors are currently touring America in support of their excellent new album Swing Lo Magellan. Last week they performed at The 9:30 Club in the nation’s capital, and 15 minutes of footage from their set has been made available, including performances of ‘The Socialites’, ‘The Gun Has No Trigger’ and ‘See What She Seeing’. Dave Longstreth, Amber Coffman and co. sound every bit as terrific live as I expected, and I sincerely hope they make their way to New Zealand on this tour. Baltimore duo Wye Oak — still touring behind last year’s impressive Civilian LP — opened the show with a blistering 45-minute set, which you can find in its entirety below (oh, to be at that gig!).
