The Dupree sisters -- and brother, and a cousin -- have been playing music since elementary school, starting with performances in their parents' Christian coffeehouse in Texas over a decade ago. As Eisley (, due tonight at the Bluebird Theater with Ives the Band, Christie DuPree and Politic), the band doesn't have much of a religious angle anymore, instead creating fantasy story-songs led by the haunting vocals of Stacy and Sherri.
After leaving Reprise records in February, the band signed with Equal Vision last week, and a new album is expected sometime next year. Although it will be Eisley's first record in four years, the Dupree sisters (including youngest sibling Christie, who is currently on tour with the band as an opening solo act) have kept busy, contributing vocals to New Found Glory and Bright Eyes recordings in the downtime. Tonight's show is sixteen and up, and tickets are $20. Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.
