The rest of the world has started to discover Mega Bog, the project of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Erin Birgy. Until a 2015 move to New York, Birgy was a longtime fixture in the Olympia and Seattle DIY music scenes, where she played in dozens of bands and cultivated an inclusive, iterative approach to music-making. Last year’s striking Happy Together is a patchwork of soft rock, lounge jazz, and cacophonous psych excursions that doesn’t shy from complexity. An opening slot for Destroyer—the work of another creatively restless polymath, Dan Bejar—suits Birgy well.
