So I went down to DC on monday to see a show. I saw the polyphonic spree play the sixth and I historic synagogue,
oddly enough the second time I have see the Spree play a synagogue, but this is the first time it was a in use synagogue. This was a fantastic place to see a show, the venue led to a level of respect or care form the crowd. As you can tell by the pictures the place was gorgeous. clearly confetti drops that might be normal at a Spree show are not OK at a place like this.
The Polyphonic Spree are one of those bands that I have no understanding why people wouldn't like them, and at the same time completely understand it. Their orchestral pop infused with gospel flavor and robes is so uplifting I would imagine that anyone who doesn't like them should be immediately prescribed some prozac. At the same time the spectacle of the band, which I view as completely sincere and unironic, could be seen by others as just plain silly. But again if you don't like silly, you should probably take some prozac. I understand that gigantic joyous pop music isn't for everyone, but if it was I think we'd all be a little happier.
Seriously watch them take a depressing Nirvana song and turn it into a happy spiritual.
