Spiritualized Play Webster Hall Tonight

September 10th, 2013

Guided by frontman Jason Pierce (J. Spaceman), English space-rockers Spiritualized have been making lush, atmospheric music since their debut, Lazer Guided Melodies, arrived in 1992. Over the years, Pierce has remained the lone constant, recording and touring with a rotating group of talented musicians. But despite the changes in personnel, he’s continued to release high-quality material, including the much acclaimed Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space, featuring a gospel choir and a Dr. John cameo—which the band played in full as part of SPIN25 at Radio City Music Hall in 2010—and last year’s terrific, ambitious Sweet Heart Sweet Light (stream it below). But just between us, J. Spaceman’s unique talents are best suited to the stage. And the good news is that Spiritualized play Webster Hall tonight, and Guy Blakeslee (of the Entrance Band) opens the show.
