For their final encore, TVOTR brought out Dirty Projectors (sans Longstreth, whose doctor has him preserving his much-abused larynx) to help provide additional percussion on “A Method.” It was a cool gesture, the musicians seemed genuinely chummy with each other, and the impromptu collaboration highlighted how oddly complementary the two bands are. Still, even after TVOTR’s long, satisfying set, it was disappointing to realize that the girls weren’t joining them to sing. That would have been brilliant — even at the risk of making the headliners’ relative shortcomings a touch too clear.
