To make things even better they are a fantastic live band.
There are a lot of bands out there these days who mix dance music with pop or rock or calypso or whatever. That is all well and good but, very often, there are seems and glitches, both figuratively and literally, in the music.
School of Seven Bells' music and performance is seemless and glitchless. They do not sound like they are trying to be anything. They just are something.
One guy in the audience had been shopping in a nearby CVS and saw the band on the marquee and bought a ticket. Others, a diverse group, talked between the opening act and School of Seven Bells about seeing them opening for Interpol or Blonde Redhead. Apparently, anyone who sees them wants to see them again and again, Everyone had a story about how they first came to hear the band.
