Scissor Sisters - Live in London

Here's a solid show from these campy disco poppers. The concert opens with "Night Work," a buoyant pop tune where singer Jake Shears cranks up the falsetto vocals Bee Gees style; the show keeps moving with the B-52's-recalling "Any Which Way" and the summery pop of "Take Your Mama."

There's definitely some Blondie love to "Kiss You Off" as singer Ana Matronic vamps like Debbie Harry while the band subtly mimics a Blondie groove; the most unlikely and surprising song in the set, although the band pulls it off nicely, is a cover of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" that's dedicated to the son of Floyd's David Gilmour, Charlie, who at the time was in trouble with the law in England.

Big hit "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" comes near set's end and the show closes with the extravagant "Invisible Light."
