Land of the Spree: Polyphonic play Neumos

PolyphoniceSpree_1_20130315_104154Led by singer Tim DeLaughter, choral/symphonic pop-rock band The Polyphonic Spree (wearing its signature choir robes) kicks off its summer tour Aug. 9 — with an album-release show for the new “Yes, It’s True” album in the band’s hometown of Dallas.

The tour of 13 U.S. cities features a show Thursday at Neumos. The Village Voice has described the band’s live show as “a beautifully executed soundtrack that forces you to marvel at how many moving parts are syncing so perfectly right before your very eyes.” Indeed, the group’s rich, complex sound features choir, piano, guitars, bass, flute, trumpet, trombone, cello, French horn, violin, viola, drums, percussion, keyboards and EWI (electronic wind instrument). Opening is Harper Simon + Friends and Family.

8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15, at Neumos, 925 E. Pike St.; $19 (www.neumos.com or www.etix.com).
