Pet Shop Boys Somewhere

Pet Shop Boys Somewhere

Somewhere was shot in 1997 when the Boys' held a two-week residency at the Savoy in West London's posh theatre district. The documentary portion of the film waxes on about the venue's prestigious history and the elegance of its décor, but the final presentation is surprisingly minimal. The stage is empty and blandly augmented by film projections of models lounging at a house party. The rest of the space is filled with a performance that's the closest the Pet Shop Boys may have ever got to doing a traditional concert. The track-listing is dominated by the hi-energy-inflected side of the duo's repertoire and features an inspired medley of "It's a Sin" with a cover of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive." The show also rounds out with three gems from the '80s, including a version of "Rent" on acoustic guitar. Plus: Backstage footage at the Savoy. (Eagle Vision/EMI)
