With special guest The Unnatural Congress of Still Beating Hearts (TUCOSBH) and yMusic
In recent years, we've brought you iconic performances from American bands just as they're on the cusp of greatness. The National, Sufjan Stevens, Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver, Andrew Bird, Beach House and Patrick Watson, to name just a few. This year it's Dirty Projectors' turn.
Their acclaimed latest album Swing Lo Magellan is currently being listed in virtually every 2012 top ten list. A collection of moments, it's accidental, fortuitous and spontaneous. Band leader David Longstreth’s idiosyncratic songwriting is at times explosive and anthemic, at others tender and disarming.
Come see what all the fuss is about when Dirty Projectors fill the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall with their strange and beautiful sounds.

“The music, in all of its intricacy, just seems to make sense in the immediate way that all great pop music does” Variety
