I was standing there listening to The Dismemberment Plan play their track The City live at Merriweather Post Pavilion during the Virgin Mobile Free Fest. I’m not sure if it was the energy put behind performing The City or the fact that Travis Morrison forgot the lyrics for their track You Are Invited, not once but twice; nonetheless, I was hooked. That’s when it hit me: how in the world have I not listened to this band before?!
I’m hoping I’m not the only one that’s had that moment about a band that’s been around for well over a decade.
For those very few that don’t know, The Dismemberment Plan is an indie/math rock quartet hailing from our nation’s wonderful capital.
You don’t have to wait for them to release anything new, unless you’re already fan. They’ve already got a few great albums under their belt so check them out.
