In Photos: The Dismemberment Plan at Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club (11/28)

on November 29, 2014, 11:30pm

On Friday night, The Dismemberment Plan returned to Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club for a homecoming show that, oddly enough, didn’t sell out. Fellow local punk rockers Priests opened, delivering crowd-frenzied performances of “And Breeding” and “Doctor”. Prior to their set, singer Katie Greer pulled out her iPhone to snap up their fans, who rushed to pick up their latest EP, Bodies and Control and Money and Power, by night’s end.

Later on, someone yelled at singer Travis Morrison, causing him to forget the words to “Ellen and Ben”, and during “OK Joke’s Over”, the band segued into “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift, who Morrison is convinced is a “fucking multi-tasker” and will be in all of our houses. As expected, the crowd jumped up on 9:30 Club’s stage during the encore performance of “The Ice of Boston”, taking me up with them for the final two songs.
