Return of the Polyphonic Spree

It feels like it's been ages since Polyphonic Spree played a show in Austin. In reality it's probably only been a year, possibly two. In any case, they're BACK and you can see them in all of their overwhelming glory at La Zona Rosa tomorrow night. The tickets will set you back roughly $20, which is pretty inexpensive when you consider how many people will be on stage. They actually have to take 2 vans on tour and I imagine each van is packed to its full capacity. I'm not, exactly, sure what The Polyphonic Spree are promoting on this tour but it seems like they might have an upcoming album called What Would You Do?. However, that might just be the name of a video contest they are running. The tour is the You + Me tour, which could mean the next album will have THAT title but what I know for sure is they have a new song called Bullseye.

The Polyphonic Spree will be donating 25% of the profits from their merchandise to Girls Rock Camp Austin in honor of Esme Barrera at tomorrow night's show. They will also have a donation bucket if you'd like to just donate directly to that cause. Not only that but you will see The Esme Barrera Fan Club Band performing She's a Rainbow at La Zona Rosa tomorrow night. I, for one, find The Polyphonic's love and support for the memory of Esme and everything she did for our community to be incredibly touching. She truly did touch so many lives in this city, country and world and she is still greatly missed.
