Belle and Sebastian

With Rasputina

Thu, Nov 6, 2003 8 PM

"Excellent...almost closer to sense memory than to music...an endless summer glow."--Rolling Stone.

Art pop ensemble Belle and Sebastian makes its Columbus debut in this much anticipated concert.
A seven-piece band that hails from Glasgow, Belle and Sebastian offers delicate, largely acoustic arrangements that support seductive, poetic song craft.

The band's songs often provoke comparisons to the work of English folk icon Nick Drake, sixties' cult band Love, the wispier side of the Velvet Underground, and the introspective genius of Morrissey.

Rarely performing live, Belle and Sebastian will more than delight the many devotees who relish the group's haunting romanticism and plaintive wonder. Look for Dear Catastrophe Waitress, the band's new CD and first for Rough Trade Records.

New York-based chamber pop band Rasputina opens the concert with its eerie cello-based sound.
