Concert photos: The Polyphonic Spree with New Fumes and Sweet Lee Morrow at the Duck Room, Friday, May 11

The Polyphonic Spree The Polyphonic Spree Kate McDaniel
Written by Kate McDaniel

Tim DeLaughter and his robed tribe, the Polyphonic Spree, transformed the Duck Room's basement venue into a multi-colored joy machine last night.

Though the tiny stage struggled to hold all 13 performers and their instruments, neither the band nor the crowd were deterred by the cramped quarters. The crowd jumped and sang along as DeLaughter swung from the rafters and flailed enthusiastically song after song.

New Fumes and Sweet Lee Morrow (both on the Good Records label) each performed sets to open the show. New Fumes, a one man production, looped synth beats over guitars, bird calls and other electronic sounds. Sweet Lee Morrow, also a solo act, stuck much closer to traditional folk sounds, favoring an acoustic guitar and keyboard as his instruments of choice.
