It List: Tuesday

Crystal Castles (House of Blues)

I know they have a new album with a pearly white review from Pitchfork but it doesn't seem like this duo has gained anymore more popularity since their ill fated Granada non-appearance last year. On top of that the dark moody dance music they are synonymous with has gone by the waste side in Urban Outfitter Hipster-dom, so I was surprised to see them booked at the same venue that will be hosting giants KC and The Sunshine Band later in the week. Crystal Castles always struck me as the Misfits of modern electro-dance with all the cartoonish indulgence but none of the humor, edginess or talent. Perfect fit with the House of Blues, hope the audio system can handle the massive sound that Crystal Castles demands.
