Scissor Sisters - "Live In Victoria Park - London 2011" DVD

Like a modern-day hybrid of the B-52s and Queen, New York-based Scissor Sisters' provocative amalgamation of disco, rock, club, and pop proves both theatrical and flamboyant. They are a fun night out, no doubt, and this DVD is ample evidence.

This pro-shot multi-cam festival set is perfectly recorded. There's the anthemic pop of the catchy "Fire With Fire", the befuddling dance-funk cover of "Comfortably Numb", and the sleazy disco trash of "Filthy/Gorgeous", among the many crowd-pleasing favorites here. "Live In Victoria Park" is a fine document of the energetic and dance-worthy Scissor Sisters live experience, and can be summed up in one word -- fun.
