Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn put a lot to love into last year's crime thriller Drive: beautifully shot California skylines, the tense existentialism of Ryan Gosling's "The Driver," and Christina Hendricks. But one thing about the film that continues to be overlooked is its excellent score, whose bouncy synths and breathy vocals make for something like the most surreal, sedate disco ever. The Drive Tour taps two acts, France's College and Canada's Electric Youth, that are heard in the movie, and another, French trio Anoraak, that would have fit in perfectly alongside them, especially with their having a song actually called "Nightdrive With You." "Cinematic" is an overused word in music journalism, sure, but Sunday's Triple Rock audience is bound to see a show that truly fulfills the descriptor. 18+.
