Crystal Castles

September 21, 2010

Grand Central

Is it possible? Has Crystal Castles' glitchy goth dance noise really gone mainstream? Will frontwoman Alice Glass's manic stage antics (stylish seizures, crowd attacks, public emotional breakdowns, etc.) become the next great dance trend?

After the band's show at Grand Central back in September, all signs seem to indicate "yes," "yes," and "yes."

What we said:

Last night, it was obvious that while they don't move album units like Lady Gaga or Enimen, Crystal Castles are definitely not the "underground" band I've loved since 2006. Kendall bros, chongas, frat bros, fashionistas, nerds, hipsters, and hippies -- from all three counties -- packed Grand Central for its first-ever sold-out show.
