Pet Shop Boys at Fillmore

Postmodern ironists cloaked behind a veil of buoyantly melodic and lushly romantic synth pop confections, Pet Shop Boys, vocalist Neil Tennant and keyboardist Chris Lowe, established themselves among the most commercially and critically successful groups of their era with cheeky, smart, and utterly danceable music. Always remaining one step ahead of their contemporaries, the British duo navigated the constantly shifting landscape of modern dance-pop with rare grace and intelligence, moving easily from disco to house to techno with their own distinctive image remaining completely intact. Satiric and irreverent — yet somehow strangely affecting — they also transcended the seeming disposability of their craft, offering wry and thoughtful cultural commentary communicated by the Morse code of au courant synth washes and drum-machine rhythms. With hits like: "West End Girls," "It’s a Sinâ€ "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" and "New York City Boy" they constantly rose to the top of the charts. On July 16th they release their latest effort Electric. Electric features nine tracks in total â€“ eight brand new Pet Shop Boysâ€™ songs plus a cover of Bruce Springsteenâ€™s â€œThe Last to Die.â€ The result is as uncompromising a collection of dance anthems as Pet Shop Boys have ever made.
