Destroyer at Mohawk

By: Laurie Gallardo

Ruff-ruff goes the beagle to the terrier…

It’s a singular line in “Eat the Wine, Drink the Bread.” It sticks to the mind. But are you one to break down a song to decipher some kind of meaning? You could, in this case, but it’ll leave you more puzzled. Destroyer songwriter and vocalist Dan Bejar is having fun with the fluidity of language on a phenomenal album, Labyrinthitis. Bejar’s made something simultaneously incredible and delightfully mystifying, with imaginative, stream-of-consciousness lyrics and obscure references mixed with gorgeous arrangements and irresistible dance grooves.

Destroyer is in Austin for a show tonight, Tuesday May 17, at the Mohawk on Red River, on the outdoor stage. Doors at 6:30 p.m., and Philadelphia-based artist Rosali opens the show (pick up the album No Medium).
