Ticket Giveaway - Belle & Sebastian - 7.13.13 - Stage AE - Show Preview - Concert Preview

Scottish power pop band Belle and Sebastian will be making an appearance Saturday, July 13th at Stage AE. To my knowledge the band has never set foot in Pittsburgh so this will be a special night. I always enjoyed their music growing up beginning with the seminal LP If You're Feeling Sinister back in 1996. I first saw the band in in San Diego back in 2006 and was apprenhensive since they aren't a real 'rocking' act. But man, they put on a really fun show and knew how to entertain with their soft pop melodies. Their last album was released in 2010 entitled Write About Love, so be expecting them to try some new material. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show. As usual, just email us at with your name to enter.

From their press:

Scottish indie pop vets Belle and Sebastian haven't gone on a full tour of North America in over two years, but once they were announced as a headliner for this year's Pitchfork Festival, we knew they'd finally be crossing the Atlantic again. And now, a full tour leading up to their slot at that festival has been announced.
Belle and Sebastian are also the subject of a new "Pitchfork Classic" documentary, which is an hour-long exploration of their 1996 album, If You're Feeling Sinister, directed by RJ Bentler. You can watch that documentary and check out a list of all upcoming dates below...It’s been a long 10 years since everyone's favorite Scottish indie band has graced the Bandshell stage, but thankfully Belle and Sebastian will be back in the park for our 35th Anniversary season.

Hailing from Glasgow, Belle and Sebastian have enjoyed much critical success since their first album Tigermilk in 1996. Since then they’ve sold over three million albums and have captured the hearts of anyone with even the slightest penchant for indie pop.Despite their large band, Belle and Sebastian’s music comes across as effortlessly cool and deceptively simple. That said, they are consistently lauded for their musicality and no album review can avoid praising the band’s songcraft.

Show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Show is outdoors on the lawn. Tickets are $35 and can be found here.
