The Dismemberment Plan – Waiting video

Leading up to their first album release in 12 years and a pair of gigs at the 9:30 club last weekend, DC legends The Dismemberment Plan premiered a music video for Uncanny Valley‘s debut single Waiting on MTV last week (they still play videos?). The bar referenced in the song is The Ugly Mug, frequented by students at Gallaudet University for the deaf and hard of hearing, leading singer Travis Morrison to include American Sign Language interpreters in the goofy video. The D-Plan took that idea all the way into their full live show, involving a rotating pair of ASL interpreters attempting (and mostly succeeding) in signing Morrison’s rapid-fire talk-sing delivery.


The Dismemberment Plan – The Ice Of Boston (Live at 9:30)

DOMA and Prop 8 are gone and many many people in DC are celebrating further progress towards equality for all. In danger of getting lost amongst the avalanche of tweets is the news that DC music legends The Dismemberment Plan will release their first album of new material this fall in 12 years. On October 15th, you can grab a copy of Uncanny Valley, with new songs test-driven live at special reunion shows over the last year. If you’re new to town or weren’t paying attention to DC indie rock in the late 90s, you might not know what you’ve missed out on so far. So here’s a live video of Travis Morrison, Eric Axelson, Jason Caddell and Joe Easley performing the classic song The Ice Of Boston at the 9:30 Club back in January 2011. Get excited!


The Dismemberment Plan – The City (Live @ 9:30)

Yesterday the much beloved early 00s DC band The Dismemberment Plan released a video of their performance of The City at their reunion show at the 9:30 Club last year. I was lucky enough to be at that gig, my first D-Plan show, and it made me wish I hadn’t missed all the ones before it.
