Preview: Destroyer @ Empty Bottle, 5/17/09


[This preview was contributed by Gapers Block: Tailgate writer Brian Lauvray.]

Canadian bred indie rocker/tongue-in-cheek zinger of all things too indie, Dan Bejar, aka, Destroyer is performing a solo show at the Empty Bottle on Sunday night. Bejar, who, for far too long, has been lumped into the New Pornorgraphers clique, has been cranking out albums under the name "Destroyer" since the mid '90s. Last year's Trouble in Dreams was album eight for Bejar, who has been speeding along and alone in his roadster built of irreverent quips and lyrics on a road headed somewhere (just not too specific of a destination, please) with his forays as a contributor alongside the NPs and others serving, more or less, as roadside curios. The audience should expect Dan, an acoustic guitar and a set list showcasing his vast catalog of Destroyer, New Pornos and Swan Lake songs. Fingers crossed, he busts out the same new material that has numerous message boards all-a-tizzy!

Destroyer plays at the Empty Bottle, Sunday, May 17th at 9:30pm. Tickets are $12.
