Los Angeles’s musical genius/mad scientist prodigal sons Sparks return with a pair of special shows at The Theater at the Ace Hotel in Downtown February 14th and 15th. (Coincidentally, the dates mark the one-year anniversary of the gorgeous if awkwardly named restored L.A. venue. Perhaps you saw Belle & Sebastian and/or Slowdive there in their inaugural year.)
Reproducing the well-received December 2014 London Barbican shows for the 40th anniversary of their seminal Kimono My House album, the duo will again perform that album in full, backed by a 38-piece orchestra–three more players than the measly 35-piece orchestra across the pond. The restless, inventive arrangements of those 10 stunning aroque pop songs should make for an aural thrill ride.
