Yale Union Benefit

David Longstreth

When: Mon., April 22, 8 p.m. 2013


David Longstreth doesn't often play solo these days—he's got an army of a band called Dirty Projectors that occupies a fair amount of his time. It's been five years since Longstreth has performed solo in Portland. So what brings him out here for his first solo gig since 2008? It's a fundraiser for Yale Union, the nonprofit art space where Dirty Projectors recorded Bitte Orca (it also benefits the Oregon Food Bank, so bring a canned good). Hearing Longstreth's songs—normally layered and twisted—in their pure form should give them even more of a good dusting in the ramshackle confines of the Eagles Lodge. MARK LORE
