Dirty Projectors Get Strange Pleasure Of Playing Album From When They Weren't Famous To Sold Out Crowds Backed By Famous Symphony

dirty-projectors-585So Dave and the DP crew are getting together to play their 2005 album The Getty Address in full later this month at a couple venues. When it came out, the album garnered some slight critical praise but went largely unnoticed. Now, they'll be playing it to sold out ballrooms backed by world-renowned orchestras (Alarm Will Sound Orchestra in NYC and the Los Angeles Philharmonic in L.A.). That's a much cooler retrospective middle finger to the haters (and the ignorers we suppose) than anything anyone has ever broadcast on Twitter. Another feather in Longstreth's cap, the e-mail we received about these shows refers to The Getty Address as "kind of like the 36 Chambers of indie rock." This band is one of probably less than three in the world that wouldn't cause us to stop dead in our tracks and click delete after reading such a statement. So there's that. Dates for the two shows are below.

02.19 New York, NY @ Lincoln Center (SOLD OUT)
02.27 Los Angeles, CA @ Walt Disney Concert Hall
