Dirty Projectors and Wye Oak at Celebrate Brooklyn

Dirty Projectors is an art-pop band led by singer, songwriter, composer, and lefty guitarist (which seems relevant somehow) David Longstreth. They headlined a triple bill last night at Celebrate Brooklyn; and while I missed openers Purity Ring, I made sure to catch Wye Oak, in the middle of the lineup. The Baltimore duo has done some terrific work (check out "Civilian" if you haven't already heard it on TV - it was used in the zombie series The Walking Dead), and I was eager to see them live.
