Dan Bejar (Destroyer) Mounts Small Solo Tour, Cafe Du Nord and Swedish American Dates

We're huge fans of Dan Bejar's non-New Pornographers project, Destroyer, so we were more than a little psyched when we heard that Bejar would be doing a small solo tour this spring. We were even more psyched when we discovered that two of the tours four dates will be right here in San Francisco, at Cafe Du Nord and the Swedish American Music Hall.

While many of Bejar's arrangements can be sprawling and intricate, his songwriting also bears an intimacy and lyricality that certainly makes it an apt choice for the solo show format. Combine that with the fact that we've never seen a Bejar live performance and, well, you can bet we'll be there. Tickets are on-sale now here, and here.
