Dirty on Purpose will be playing their farewell show with close friends, A Place To Bury Strangers, on New Year's Eve at Mercury Lounge. The Strangers have been their friends and fellow Death By Audio dwellers for years now and Mercury Lounge is where the band played their first big sold out show back in 2003 with the Decemberists.
A personal message from Dirty on Purpose:
After six years of spending an unhealthy and unusual amount of time together, Dirty on Purpose is going the way of the dodo. We got back from tour about a month ago and sat down to talk about recording another record, and realized we didn't really want to record another record. Not now anyway. So we're going our separate ways.
Our best friends and practice space sharers of many years, A Place to Bury Strangers, offered us the opening slot on their New Year's Eve gig at Mercury Lounge. We thought it was an appropriate way to wind things down and say goodbye to our friends and fans.Get your tickets now -- it's gonna sell out.
We're still playing music and we hope you'll come support our other projects: Joe and Doug harmonize sweetly in Neckbeard Telecaster; George shreds the bass in Coin Under Tongue; Joe helms Joe and the Flying Spoons; and Doug plays with Purse Snatchers and Black Acid.
Finally, we're all still buddies and live in the same town, so we reserve the right to change our minds and get back together in six months if we feel like it.
