Formed in 2001, Scissor Sisters may well be the last band standing from the New York electroclash scene that blew up in 2004. That year, the group's B-side "Comfortably Numb," a cover of the Pink Floyd track, become a worldwide hit and pushed vocalists Jake Shears and Ana Matronic, multi-instrumentalist Baby Daddy and guitarist Del Marquis to the top of pop's A-list. U2's Bono even called Scissor Sisters "the best pop group in the world at the moment."

Today at noon ET, Scissor Sisters will bring a stadium-sized sound to the relatively tiny World Cafe Live stage in Philadelphia — and you can listen to the whole show live as it happens. You can bet the band will perform songs from its new record, Night Work, which has already sold a million copies in the U.K. alone.
