Locals The Sea and Cake headline a free show in Millennium Park tonight; the eclectic, ambitious New York outfit the Dirty Projectors open in support of their latest album. "I hadn’t been able to stomach any of Dirty Projectors’ music till I heard Bitte Orca," writes Peter Margasak, "whose bald ambition and surfeit of ideas impressed me enough that I gave the band a second chance. The tune that pulled me in was 'Stillness Is the Move,' sung by guitarist Amber Coffman: it sounds like a warped strain of pop R & B, as though Mariah Carey were accompanied by Deerhoof playing a stripped-down instrumental."
