The Polyphonic Spree, Harper Simon, Friends & Family 

When: Sat., Aug. 17, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $18-20
The Polyphonic Spree have been an anomaly since their inception in 2007. Boasting a huge amount of members (currently around 20), a penchant for variously colored robes, and an ear toward the symphonic-pop corners of the sonic universe, the Dallas-based conglomerate are almost definitely in a realm all their own. Their new album, Yes It's True, finds the band at its most unorthodox, splitting time between feel-good orchestral anthems and decidedly straightforward pop numbers like "Carefully Try," where ringleader Tim DeLaughter's fragile timbres swoosh and flutter like a relaxing summer breeze. It's possibly the Spree's most diverse recording to date, seeing as it was produced in stages over a long period of time. Either way, tonight's performance should be an uplifting spectacle. RYAN J.
