Was that the Polyphonic spree concert?

Cha they make cults seem cool. How is the album? Compare it to Flaming Lips, if you ever heard any lips.

It was indeed!

THEY ARE NOT A CULT. They're just a really large musical group.

The album is the best album of last year ('course, my opinion isn't very useful in that respect, as I don't really listen to new music unless it is forced upon me). I can listen to it 20 times in a row and not get tired of it. They are ALWAYS compared to the Flaming Lips and besides the nasally singer, I'm honestly not sure why. The band is big and the songs are big. They sing about the sun and about walking around and about how good it is to be alive and about love (not love songs, per se, just the thing, love, they sing about it.) Then they sing about the sun some more. They are the best live act I have ever experienced. Many of their songs have big repetitive refrains, so that even if you've never heard them before, you can be singing along with them by the second chorus. The Polyphonic Spree remind you of how wonderful being alive can be.

i'm so happy you finally got to see them.

i had a similar situation with stereolab more than a decade ago, so i felt your pain and subsequent elation!

Me too! This is actually the third time I've seen them since that whole debacle last year. But this was the best one yet. And they said that they'd be taking a break from the road, and perhaps working on a new album, so it will have to hold me for a while.

My friend called me tonight because he has two free tickets to the Polyphonic Spree show tomorrow...so I'm going. I know NOTHING about them, but I hear they're great.

OH MAN YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST TIME EVER SERIOUSLY!! Be sure to bring an extra five bucks for a tambourine.

Heh, yeah, they're just cheap plastic things -- both Chris and Jeff destroyed theirs, I guess I wasn't rocking out hard enough -- but MAN are they fun! I kept saying I should buy a REAL tambourine and bring it to concerts all the time. They are great Rocking Out Enhancers.

Nope, they are at Irving Plaza tonight! These pictures were taken Monday night, at the Theater of Living Arts in Philadalphia.
