Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space Lands on the Bowery
Last year, O.G. English space-rock collective Spiritualized reissued 1997's dreamy classic Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space, and commemorated the occasion by doing a series of ATP-sponsored Don't Look Back shows around the UK, performing the thing in its entirety. The band is doing the album exactly once stateside in 2010 and, lucky us, they're doing it in New York--July 30th at Radio City Music Hall, where J. Spaceman promises to bring along a choir, an eight-piece string section, and horns. Floating In Space is a beautiful record, and so, happily, is Radio City's striking advertising campaign for the show, which hit the Bowery sometime over the weekend.

Definitely the nicest ad for a show we've seen this year. Tickets seem to still be available; cop them here.
