Boise to get Spiritualized 

Saturday, April 6 at Egyptian Theatre

Some bands are more than bands. They're passwords or secret handshakes that signal like-mindedness among strangers.

Spiritualized is just that sort of band.

Since its founding more than 20 years ago, Spiritualized has practiced a different kind of alternative rock, the kind typified by the Mazzy Star classic "Fade Into You," which includes droning, achingly lovely songs as vast and sparse as space itself. Spiritualized works like a hypnotist, putting the audience into a trance with its different breed of gospel music.

But it's not only the spiritual who get it. The band was once asked to perform at the CERN collider in Europe, but the timing didn't work out.

Once you've experienced Spiritualized, the only thing to do is search out others who have been there as well.
