Dirty Projectors / Polar Bear Tickets

Saturday sees an intriguing triple bill at Crawdaddy as Dirty Projectors, Polar Bear and Lucky Dragons all call into town. Dirty Projectors, led by genius songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dave Longstreth, were signed to Domino following the release of ‘Rise Above’, their critically acclaimed ‘reimagining’ of Black Flag’s ‘Damaged’. They are set to release a new album early this year.

They will be joined by avant-jazz outfit Polar Bear, whose inventive blend of contemporary jazz with indie and electronica elements has won them nominations for the BBC Jazz Awards and the Mercury Awards. Their self-titled third album was released through Tin Angel Records last year. Tour support will come from L.A. experimental music/art duo Lucky Dragons, who played a Skinny Wolves show here in January.

We have three pairs of tickets to giveaway to the show on March 28th. To win just send your name to giveaway@state.ie by midday on Friday.
