Dirty Projectors Announce 1st Tour In 5 Years


Indie-rockers the Dirty Projectors issued a self-titled full-length album last year, but only played live a handful of times. Today, the band announced a 2018 World Tour in support of Dirty Projectors that marks the first tour by the band since 2013.

Dave Longstreth will be joined by bassist Nat Baldwin and drummer Mike Johnson, who both previously toured with the group, as well as keyboardist Kristin Slipp, guitarist Maia Friedman and percussionist Felicia Douglass for the run. The first headlining date will take place at The Music Box in San Diego on May 12. From there, the Dirty Projectors bring the tour to Austin, New Orleans, Birmingham, Nashville, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto and Pittsburgh over the course of May.

The first leg ends at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. on June 1. Dirty Projectors then head west for shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Salt Lake City, Denver, Santa Fe, Dallas and Houston over the course of June. In August, the band crosses the Atlantic for a European leg.
