And I am so excited to see STARS! If you use the link, make sure you have your speakers on! Music starts immediately. If you use the navigation (a dropdown menu comes when you rest your pointer on the Navigation image), choose ALBUM from the image menu and you can play all songs from their current and past albums! YAY!
This band is immediately nostalgic and warm when you listen to them. Super-catchy “indie” band from Canada with deceptively poignant and brooding lyrics; singable songs that almost turn into personal anthems. I intend to go to both shows at Bowery Ballroom and Southpaw! Woo Hoo!
I love this review of STARS:
“Stars are soft-revolutionaries and music is their rallying cry. Amy Millan, Chris Seligman, Torquil Campbell and Evan Cranley are four young people who, through their music, are trying to save us from our mundane and complacent fears. When at a loss for words, one music writer said the only way to describe Stars was “beautiful hope”. Their music has been described as “breath-takingly effervescent” and they have been called the kind of band that “blue lights and fog machines are made for”. Somewhere dancing between these designations is Stars; otherworldly blissfulness and a sophisticated, epicurean cool. To them, art is the way to change the world because it is sincere and heartfelt. With them, it has no pretenses and is filled with passion and longing.”
WATCH THEM LIVE on KCRW

Choose between HEART and SET YOURSELF ON FIRE
note: HEART is a particulary excellent performance
And don’t get me started that DEAD CAN DANCE are coming to Radio City Music Hall! More on that, later.
