The highly original rock band Dirty Projectors just keeps notching up peak experiences: collaborating with David Byrne, working with Bjork, releasing an album of Black Flag covers, etc. Their gig at Port City Music Hall (504 Congress St., Portland), with Delicate Steve opening at 8 p.m., may or may not rise to that peak level, but there’s only one way to find out. Tix: $20-$22 (18+). 899-4990. portcitymusichall.com.
