Enraptured by the screeching punk rock that tore up the stage during last week's pool party, we wandered back to the Waterfront to check out Dirty Projectors and company. The music was noticeably tamer but the crowd swelled, braving the long lines and hot sun, packing every nook to catch a glimpse of the super-hyped Brooklyn band. Crystal Antlers played a solid set, Magnolia Electric was sweet, if sleepy, and anxious anticipation set in for the headliners, who were making a brief homecoming appearance before setting off on tour again. From Dave Longstreth's tender guitar plucking and Angel Deradoorian's hushed crooning on "Two Doves," to Brian McComber's violent drumming behind Longstreth's dissonant wails on "Useful Chamber," Dirty Projectors owned the show with the harmonious eccentricity and professional precision that's been generating all that well-deserved buzz. They slipped old favorites such as "Gimme Gimme Gimme," "Thirsty and Miserable," and of course, "Rise Above" into the set list. Amber Coffman was the expected high point, with her signature vocals on "Stillness is the Move" and her signature strut, rocking the imitation R&B. They even encored with "Knotty Pine," and we watched in amusement as hundreds of hipsters clambered over each other to see if David Byrne made an appearance (he didn't). When all was finished, enthusiasm was high. No one was disappointed, but then again, no one was surprised. Of course the show was great, but it was a safe bet that most of the attendees were already enamored with Longstreth's long-necked head-bob, the three tiny girls with mammoth voices, and the much-blogged pop-friendly art-rock indie masterpiece Bitte Orca. Out of all the recent outdoor dates Dirty Projectors had played recently, they finally caught a sunny one, and they played it with the relaxed ease of a band that didn't have to prove anything - they were just happy to be home. -Nina Mashurova
