The 2008 debut of Hercules and Love Affair was one of that year's most outstanding and unexpected albums, a blast of vampy disco struts and early house classicism that managed to still feel like fresh air. Its breakout single "Blind" even recast tortured crooner Antony Hegarty as a mirrorball torch-song diva. Pity it took TWO FREAKING YEARS for the band to come play Seattle. They've lost vocalist Nomi Ruiz (who sang the achingly persuasive lead on "You Belong"), but the live act, featuring producer/mastermind Andy Butler, Kim Ann Foxman, and a full band, should still thrill—and hopefully include new material.
