Style-smashing Brooklyn art rock ensemble Dirty Projectors is a well-tuned pop supercollider. Leader Dave Longstreth’s compositional brilliance shines through rapid-fire sonic changes and fastidious pop/punk/soul songs that careen from tense to joyful to irreverent, achieving a soundscape that’s “completely strange and oddly familiar at the same time,” says David Byrne. Hear what lies ahead as DP premieres music from its forthcoming CD (and other surprises) in this specially constructed Walker evening. Click for more information

WHAT THE REVIEWERS ARE SAYING

“There’s a world of cross-references in Dirty Projectors’ music: stuttering modal riffs from Mali . . . pygmy antiphonal vocals, Captain Beefheart, Zimbabwean and Congolese rock, King Crimson, Talking Heads, Dan Hick and his Hock Licks.” —New York Times

“[Longstreth] is (why pull punches?) a nobrow genius, who claims to find similar solaces in the work of Beethoven, Wagner, Zeppelin and Timberlake.” —Pitchfork
