Au Revoir Simone and Dirty On Purpose play with Swedes
The show was the latest in a long line of sold-out shows played by the Swedish trio since the release of their album ‘Writer’s Block’.
While the band’s debut downtown Manhattan gig in January featured the Concrete’s Victoria Bergsman on guest vocals, last night’s performance of ‘Young Folks’ saw an appearance by Heather D’Angelo of opening act Au Revoir Simone. D’Angelo had performed Bergsman’s part the previous night in Washington DC. The band also invited Dirty On Purpose drummer Doug Marvin onstage to play bongos on the track.
All three acts will continue the tour tonight, with a second show at Webster Hall.
The dates are:
New York, NY Webster Hall (May 2)
Philadelphia, PA Theatre of Living Arts (3)
Boston, MA Paradise (4)
Montreal, QC Theatre National (5)
Wexner Center, Columbus, Ohio (7)
Chicago, IL Empty Bottle (8)
Minneapolis, MN First Avenue (9)
