Stairs of Perception

The Stairs swear they aren't breaking up, they're just seeing other people. And maybe that's why they for their penultimate show last night at the Paradise Lounge, they conspicuously left the On Sleep Lab starter track "Don't Abandon Your Band" off of their setlist, and instead brought back their old keyboard player Rob Johnson, and even sporadically added a cellist and guest girl-vox to the already crowded stage. They even deviated from their general no-cover policy to rock Bowie's "Queen Bitch" (go figure, Stairs frontman Ryan Walsh is a Wes Anderson fan). We suggest you mark your calendars for their fare-thee-well-for-now show at O'Brien's on August 11th, and get tape yr tape decks rolling when they hit up WMBR's Pipeline this Tuesday.
