The Polyphonic Spree at The PageantJune 20, 2007
The Polyphonic Spree have just announced a show at The Pageant on Saturday, August 4th. The band released their third (fourth if you include the Thumbsucker soundtrack) album, The Fragile Army, earlier this week. No matter what you think of the band’s uber-happy (zoinks! I said uber), over-the-top theatrics and histrionics on CD, you should definitely give them a chance in a live setting. I have seen them live only twice – once at the Austin City Limits Music Festival and once at one of their annual (but no-longer occuring) Christmas shows in their hometown of Dallas. They truly are a sight to behold live.
