harptallica1Every time you hear one of those crushing Metallica power chords you love for its heaviness, newly enervated into a trill on harpstrings, you either want to laugh or sigh.

lezsmall After one song I was hooked. I knew the crowd was not going to be bored by some weak, imitator, wanna-be band - these girls were on a mission to pay homage to a rock and roll legend.

live_centro"Calling Thermatico" flows from the same vein as many of Centro-matic's songs. Enigmatic and defying all explanation, the song describes a person, a situation, a mood—a general context.






The Polyphonic Spree | 08.04.07

Written by Gabe Bullard Tuesday, 07 August 2007 13:05
















Keeping in line with the band's latest album, the songs were positive, but politically charged with an overall message of, "Everything sucks, but our happiness will change the world."

alison_krauseThe poor acoustics of the Scottrade Center gave a great natural reverb to Krauss' stellar voice, and the two-hour set showcased the talents of her spectacular band.
