Last night’s show at Emos was a much-anticipated gig, featuring two huge acts touring together. Wye Oak served as the appetizer for the Dirty Projectors, setting us all up for what would be a pretty solid evening all around.
Read on for more thoughts, and for great pics by B. Gray.
With more show pics and a review coming later this week from their Austin show, I’m going to focus more on my overall Marfa experience culminating with the Dirty Projectors show at the Crowley Theatre. I’ll be as brief as I can since the Marfa experience is really something best witnessed first hand and not by an amature blogger who happens to love a great show. Follow the jump for my thoughts and some photos by contributor Mair.Heard.

I’m sure this show probably doesn’t need much of an introduction, as it’s one of the hottest tickets around, but we thought we’d give you a friendly reminder about one of the big shows coming into town on Thursday. If you’ve recovered from Divine Fits at Beerland, you should definitely check out Dirty Projectors, the indie art-pop act who’ve been making waves pretty much since their inception. They come into town fresh off the recent release of Swing Lo Magellan, their latest record. And as if that wasn’t enough, you can also, and should, catch the marvelous opening duo, Wye Oak. It’s been awhile since Civilian came out, but just hearing those songs live brings everything back to life. We’ll definitely see you there folks!
