Polyphonic Spree

Progressive pop cult The Polyphonic Spree have a bunch of festival dates scheduled for this spring/summer and they'll also be touring around those fests, playing a number of club dates throughout the US. Those dates include NYC shows happening on July 9 at Music Hall of WIlliamsburg and July 10 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (5/3) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (5/1) at noon.

The Polyphonic Spree were also among the recent additions to this year's Bonnaroo lineup. Other additions include Solange, White Lung, Mac DeMarco, Black Prairie, Maps & Atlases, Royal Thunder, William Tyler, Cat Martino, On An On, Bilal and more. 4-Day passes for the festival are still available.

The best example of what happens when you fuck with drugs. Don't be like these guys, kids.

I think if Kurt was alive he'd be creating music on many different levels . The only person on his peer group i could compare him to and the path he might have taken is Trent Reznor.

Aren't the best covers those that add something completely unique to the original; that cause the listener to reevaluate the original? What is the point of replicating a song exactly as it was? People should always be seeking new ways to view things. You don't like it, that's fair enough but at least appreciate that they've done something totally different with it - far more daring than imitating. =]

Best band of a generation. Musically, fantastic. Have the guts to experiment.

True musicians.
