The explosive Toronto duo Crystal Castles craft an experimental maelstrom that is as engaging as it is sonically abrasive. But if you give in to the dynamic, forceful rhythms generated by Ethan Kath and the piercing vocals of the boundlessly energetic Alice Glass, their hypnotic songs are bound to take you somewhere special. Their live shows are typically incendiary, vibrant affairs, as the booming beats consume everything in their path, while the enthralling spirit of Glass is bound to get everyone moving right along with her. Touring behind their second self-titled full-length, Crystal Castles are sure to deliver a bold, aggressive set that should leave the sold-out First Avenue audience stunned and satisfied.
