Concert: Destroyer

November 2, 2016
Fullerton Hall
Tickets required: $25 nonmember, $15 member; $10 student

Dan Bejar, the enigmatic Canadian singer-songwriter who records as Destroyer, performs an intimate solo acoustic set. Destroyer's songs draw on a wide variety of musical influences, while showcasing a casual literary brilliance with intense melodic verve. 

Acclaimed folk-pop artist Liam Hayes opens the program with a rare solo performance.  

About the Artist: 

Dan Bejar started Destroyer as a solo home-recording project in Vancouver in the early to mid-nineties. Exploring and overturning genres such as glam, MIDI, yacht rock, and even underground Spanish independent artists, Bejar was proclaimed “Rock’s Exiled King” by The Fader. His is a body of work that consistently flouts convention in favor of musical leaps of faith, statements of purpose cloaked in subterfuge, and the joyous refrain of an optimist’s heart cloaked in cynicism. In addition to the multiple albums recorded as Destroyer, Bejar is also a member of acclaimed Canadian "supergroup" The New Pornographers.
