Broken Social Scene at Revolution Live February 12

Though its name conjures up thoughts of isolation, the reality of Canadian indie-rock juggernaut Broken Social Scene is quite the opposite. The Scene's earliest incarnation began at the turn of the millennium and it has featured 25 different members.

As hard as it is to pin down a head count, there are a few anchor members. The founders and constants include frontman Kevin Drew and bassist Brendan Canning. At the moment, the troupe also prominently features drummer Justin Peroff, multi-instrumentalist Charles Spearin, guitarist Andrew Whiteman, and singer Lisa Lobsinger, who has been with the band steadily for the past five years.

Fact: Broken Social Scene is a family with 25 members.

With Zeus. 8 p.m. Saturday, February 12, at Revolution Live, 200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 954-449-1025; jointherevolution.net. Tickets cost $22. All ages.

The band shuns the super-group tag, but Broken Social Scene has, at some point, also notably featured all four members of Stars, two of Metric (including its singer Emily Haines), and Feist. Somehow, almost all of them reconnected briefly for last year's Forgiveness Rock Record. So it seems that wherever its erstwhile members may roam, they all manage to eventually make it home.
