Destroyer

The self-absorbed diva of the New Pornographers. No, I'm not talking about Neko Case, I would never say such a thing about her. I'm talking about Dan Bejar, aka Destroyer, the frizzy haired dude with the weird voice who occasionally tours with the New Pornographers. When he does tour with them, he even occasionally plays, like, almost every other song. When he breaks out the guitar, he likes to play with his back to the stage (like all pretentious guitar babies do).

The last time I saw him at the Doug Fir, it appeared like he cut the show short due to a heckler. He was about to start a song, then walked off stage, and the show was over. Self-absorbed diva might be a bit rude, so I apologize. Others would prefer calling him a little bitch. But you know what, I love the guy. I own most of his albums, I attended the New Pornographers show because of him (sorry AC), and I have March 19th circled on my calender.
