Stars is one of those secret gem bands easily glossed over because it is part of something much bigger and seemingly more important -- like Broken Social Scene, the collective/super-band Stars is connected to.
This may not be the ideal situation for a band, but for fans, it's nothing but a bonus. Being able experience the quintet's light-saturated, intelligent pop in a smaller theater space like the Bluebird, where Stars will be tonight with Geographer and Carbon Choir, only accentuates the experience.
Currently touring in support of its fifth album, The Five Ghosts, the band's twelve-plus year run has yielded a hefty discography with plenty of EPs between. This is a sixteen and up show, and tickets are $25. Doors open at 7 p.m., bands start at 8 p.m.
