Hey Marseilles 

March 9, Neurolux

When Seattle-based indie pop band Hey Marseilles caught the attention of National Public Radio, the seven-piece band crammed into the office of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen.

Armed with an accordion, a guitar, a drum set, another guitar, a cello, a violin and a muted trumpet, the band members played shoulder-to-shoulder for their 2010 Tiny Desk Concert debut, spinning sounds similar to a less-weird Beirut and a cheerier Bright Eyes.

Hey Marseilles, now a quintet, will have space to spread out on the Neurolux stage Wednesday, March 9.

The band formed in 2006 when vocalist Nick Ward and Matt Bishop met at University of Washington in Seattle. The duo quickly expanded into a five-piece indie pop band, sucking in roommates, friends and fellow musicians. Since then, they've toured around the country, performing at South by Southwest, Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot.

They released their most recent self-titled album on Feb. 5 under the guidance of producer Anthony Kilhoffer, who won Grammys for his work with Kanye West and John Legend. While Kilhoffer usually works with Top-40s artists like Jay Z and R. Kelly, Hey Marseilles caught Kilhoffer's eye—or rather, his ear.

Catchy, uplifting and laid back, this show will have the crowd swaying and dancing long after the bars close.
