Get your gay on. This band is unbelievable live. Saw them a couple years ago at the Tabernacle.

Scissor Sisters are an American pop and rock band whose musical style draws from disco, glam rock and the New York City club scene. Formed in 2001, the group consists of vocalists Jake Shears and Ana Matronic, multi-instrumentalist Babydaddy, lead guitar/bassist, Del Marquis, and drummer Randy Real, the latter of whom joined in replacement of former drummer Paddy Boom. "Spawned by the scuzzy, gay nightlife scene of New York",[1] they took their name from a sexual position between two women known as tribadism.[2]

The group arose to public attention with the release of their self-titled debut album in 2004, from which they gained chart success in Australia, Canada and parts of Europe ? particularly their "spiritual home", the United Kingdom,[3] where Scissor Sisters was the best-selling album of that year ? although not their native United States. Several singles from the album also proved to be a success, including "Comfortably Numb", "Laura" and "Take Your Mama". They followed this with their second album, Ta-Dah, in 2006, which again proved to be a commercial and critical success, with singles including "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" and "Land of a Thousand Words". Their third album, Night Work, was released in 2010, and displayed a shift towards a more club-orientated sound.

The band have collaborated with a number of other well known pop musicians, including Elton John and Kylie Minogue, and were received positively by a number of other notable figures, with Bono describing them as "the best Pop group in the world at the moment" in 2004.
