Twee pop luminaries Belle and Sebastian treated Philly to a rare performance at the Mann Center Skyline Stage on Wednesday, 7/10 (see setlist below). Perennial indie rock heroes Yo La Tengo opened the show.

B&S haven’t released a studio album since their excellent 2010 LP Belle and Sebastian Write About Love (below is a music video for “I Want The World To Stop” from that album); however, they’re set to release an album of rarities, collectibles, and non-LP tracks from the last decade – the album is titled The Third Eye Centre and it will be released on August 27th (pre-order here).
