Dancer vs. Politician at the Camel

"We love violas," is the MySpace headline from the chamber pop group Dancer vs. Politician, and it comes across tenfold on its debut album, "A City Half-Lost." Led by songstress Sanni Baumgaertner, who sings in both in her native German and English, this nine-piece Athens, Ga., outfit uses all kinds of nonrockin' instrumentation in its sunny pop tunes. Accompanied by tambourines, glockenspiels, trumpets, and of course, violas, the group's trans-Atlantic charm can be seen at the Camel on Saturday, Nov. 8, at 9 p.m. $6. 353-4901.
