Most people appreciate bands that are loud and large, except for the man with the world’s biggest ear, who causes bands to break up because he prefers solo albums. Stick it to Gary with this GrouponLive deal to see The Polyphonic Spree at House of Blues San Diego. For $14, you get one general-admission ticket on Sunday, April 1, at 8 p.m. (up to a $26.50 value, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
The bastions of symphonic choral pop that form The Polyphonic Spree get heavy together as its merry constituents hit the road for “Phase One” of its You + Me tour. Led by enigmatic visionary Tim DeLaughter, the 20-plus members of The Polyphonic Spree refuse to cover their sparkling mouths, spreading contagious joy with therapeutic epics such as “Light and Day” and “Hold Me Now.” On its highly awaited tour, the psychedelic clown car of gregarious, robed Texans spreads the gospel of its upcoming record, along with classic tracks scribed from the belly of a rainbow. With bottomless energy and a noncombatant army of instruments, The Polyphonic Spree is best experienced live, like a first kiss or a first open-heart surgery. Starting the show, one-man media installation New Fumes auctioneers a collection of sonic paintings that sound fetching in mental foyers.
