The Polyphonic Spree to Play the Entire Country Saturday Night
The PSpree opened the tour for its third album, The Fragile Army, last Saturday night at the Granada Theater -- a spectacular-spectacular, in a words. But this Saturday night, when the 302-piece band treks up to the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., it'll teach the world to sing in perfect harmony courtesy National Public Radio. Beginning around 9 p.m. local time, NPR will stream the entire concert online, as part of NPR Music's All Songs Considered, hosted by Bob Boilen. By Sunday morning, no doubt, every third MP3 blog in the country will feature downloadable versions of said show. Till there, here's some Spree at the Granada, performing their, um, classic (?) "Light & Day/Reach for the Sun." --Robert Wilonsky
