Don’t Forget to Buy Dismemberment Plan Tickets This Afternoon, You Guys

Before Travis Morrison’s solo album received one of the most brutal lashings Pitchfork’s ever handed out, he was the frontman for one of the most beloved (by Pitchfork and everyone else) emo-affiliated bands of the 90s and early-00s, Washington D.C.’s the Dismemberment Plan. They broke up in 2003, but word came last week that they’re planing a few reunion shows, one of which will take place at Webster Hall on January 29th, 2011. Tickets are on sale right now, and I feel like you should probably at least consider picking one up. They’ve aged surprisingly well. For some reason, YouTube has no record of my favorite D-Plan song, “Ellen and Ben,” but you can, and should, download it here.

  • I don’t get this band at all. Seriously, why are they supposed to be good? I might not get the entire city of Washington DC come to think of it. I like Unrest…and…and…

  • Mike! We have the same favorite D-Plan song! Except on the days when my favorite is “Ice of Boston” or “Gyroscope.” But on a lot of days it’s “Ellen and Ben” and it’s certainly my favorite off of Change. Their last song on their last record! So sad. So good.
