Washington, D.C.’s Dismemberment Plan are on their final tour, always arriving armed with gusto, a mind for funky rhythms and smart, pensive lyrics on topics from politics to partying protocol. Maybe that’s why, over the group’s 11-year stint, Travis Morrison’s lyrics and moves have been likened to both Talking Heads and booty bass jams.
Their latest, Change, percolates where their older material crackled with ferocious speed, with new songs that drip bittersweet and tangy. Come help see ’em off. Their District neighbors, likeminded arty punks El Guapo, kick off the joyful noise. (Miss Spice and the Malenium Band have canceled.) For more information: 967-9053.
