Who? Destroyer is Canadian songsmith Dan Bejar, also known for his work with the New Pornographers and Swan Lake.
What? A 29-date North American outing in support of the March 18 release of Destroyer's latest and eighth LP to date, Trouble in Dreams.
Should I go? Absolutely. Bejar's envelope-pushing project may just be the best work from a New Pornographer gone solo.
