Bye, everyone. I’m taking my beach chair, grabbing a few books and heading over to wait on Crosby Street to secure a seat for this unbelievable event on May 8th. Come visit me. Bring snacks!
From Ryan Dombai, for Pitchfork: “Both Björk and Dirty Projectors make beloved (and sometimes polarizing) music on their own terms. A collaboration between the two may not seem completely obvious, but it does seem right. On May 8, AIDS and homelessness charity Housing Works will present a benefit concert with both artists, taking place at the 300-capacity Housing Works Bookstore & Café in downtown New York City. The show– curated by Pitchfork contributor and Stereogum senior writer Brandon Stosuy– will feature Björk performing a newly composed suite written by lead Projector David Longstreth and featuring Longstreth along with his band mates Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian, and Haley Dekle.
