The Polyphonic Spree 

click to enlarge mus_rec-1.jpg

A brief history of the Polyphonic Spree, as told through wardrobe changes: white robes (the uplifting choir of angels on 2002 debut The Beginning Stages of... ); red robes (festivals, Christmas gigs); Technicolor robes (prismatic 2004 follow-up Together We're Heavy); "lifeline" robes (the EKG period from 2005-6, defined by delays and a covers EP aptly titled Wait); all-black karate gis (2007 rock comeback The Fragile Army, or Cobra Kai's punch-bowl spiked with MDMA); soccer shorts (the Adidas-sponsored theme for hometown footballers FC Dallas, oddly titled "HOOPS Yes!"); Oscar de la Renta (not really, but the group did headline New York Fashion Week in February 2008); street clothes (presumably — dormant from 2009-11); one-legged furballs (the glowing protagonist in the interactive iPhone app/music video for new out-of-the-blue single "Bullseye," on which fearless leader Tim DeLaughter swallows all of Wayne Coyne's happy pills); white robes with red hearts (for new out-of-the-blue tour "You + Me," presage to a 2012 LP, maybe). New Fumes opens. Tickets $17 in advance, $20 day of show, $45 VIP. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
