The best of the entire weekend
The Dismemberment Plan, performing tonight at the Black Cat (sold out), and Saturday and Sunday (also sold out) at 9:30 Club.
I loathe to admit, but I've yet to earn my D-Plan stripes. It's not looking like this will be the weekend to do so either. In all matters Dismemberment Plan, [...]

Watch: The Dismemberment Plan on Fallon

In what won't be the last time we talk about D-Plan today, here they are last night on Jimmy Fallon, performing "The City" on air and "What Do You Want Me to Say?" for the Web. But wait?
