✨✨OCTOBER 1 ✨✨ POLACON & RGRS PRESENT: THE POLYPHONIC SPREE & PEARL EARL
For the first time in more than ten years The Polyphonic Spree will return to a Denton stage for a once-in-a-lifetime concert under the stars. Pearl Earl will be joining the festivities, and we have some special surprises in store as well.
// The Polyphonic Spree // @polyspree
The American choral rock band formed in 2000 by Tim DeLaughter (of Tripping Daisy) just celebrated their 23rd birthday.
And this PolaCon appearance marks the first time in more than 11 years that the Dallas-based 20+ member orchestral-choral-pop group has played in Denton.
The chamber rock collective is known for their own compositions, which have been featured in numerous movies and TV shows, as well as for remarkable covers of Nirvana’s “Lithium,” The Rolling Stones’ psychedelic “She’s a Rainbow” and INXS’ rousing “Don’t Change.”
Over the two decades, the choral symphonic pop rock band has boasted an impressive roster of singers and musicians too lengthy to list here.
The band’s soaring, inspirational sound varyingly relies on a mix of choral and instrumental color featuring a choir, flute, trumpet, french horn, trombone, harp, violin, cello, guitars, bass, drums and piano or keyboards.
The Polyphonic Spree is gearing up to release “Salvage Enterprise” later in 2023.
// Pearl Earl // @pearlearlmusic
Pearl Earl is the neo-psychedelic rock project of multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Ariel Hartley.
Now primarily based in Los Angeles and North Texas, Pearl Earl’s sophomore record, “It’s Dread,” was just released June 22 via NYC-based Green Witch Recordings.
The band has been in constant evolution and shape-shifting since its birth as a bedroom project on Hartley’s laptop in her early college years. With heavy nods to spacey prog and golden era glam rock, Pearl Earl invokes the cosmic nostalgia of the past while carving new territory of its own psychedelic universe.
The band’s dynamic live performances have been described as “captivating and euphoric with an ominous grin.”
