It’s been a long 10 years since everyone's favorite Scottish indie band has graced the Bandshell stage, but thankfully Belle and Sebastian will be back in the park for our 35th Anniversary season.

Hailing from Glasgow, Belle and Sebastian have enjoyed much critical success since their first album Tigermilk in 1996. Since then they’ve sold over three million albums and have captured the hearts of anyone with even the slightest penchant for indie pop.

Despite their large band, Belle and Sebastian’s music comes across as effortlessly cool and deceptively simple. That said, they are consistently lauded for their musicality and no album review can avoid praising the band’s songcraft.

With the release of their new album featuring rarities and b-sides this June and a promise to hit the studio post-tour, this show, which will also feature Yo La Tengo, will be the perfect time and place to indulge your nostalgia for the '90s while looking forward to a great future for your ears.
