The Polyphonic Spree
As with most mysterious happenings, reports of roving Texan troupe The Polyphonic Spree vary. While there were a good two dozen of its matching-robed members onstage a few years back, lately the count is in the mid-teens. Though pared down, and with the days of playing the Greek with Bowie or co-headlining the Wiltern's New Year's Eve bash a decade distant, the Spree retain their signature glee and remain a uniquely immersive, inclusive and ecstatic experience. Lead by blissfully detached singer-conductor Tim DeLaughter, TPS are Godspell meets Flaming Lips via The Wicker Man: the beating heart of a rock band made multidimensional with brass, strings and an all-gal choir. Celebrating their 14th anniversary (to the day) at the Bootleg, The Polyphonic Spree's sheer warm-hearted ambition is yet to be replicated.
