DM Stith, whom you will recall obtained the 17th slot on Metacritics rather objective Best of 2009 list, is dedicated. He will debut an album that challenges you. He will release EPs that undermines and subverts his own music. He will play…on Christmas day. For you.
On the 25th, Stith will be playing at The Stone in a series of concerts curated by singer and composer David Garland, known also for his work with WNYC-FM. This fantastic series includes performances by Danielson on the 22nd, Rob Moose on the 18th (who has played violin for My Brightest Diamond and Sufjan Stevens), and the Garbus sisters (one of whom heads up tUnE-YaRdS). If you’re in NYC, you should make it to one if not several of these shows. We’d expect some kind of festive music though, if we were you.
Details are on The Stone’s calendar page here.
