Crystal Castles- LIVE Preview- 9/27, Charlotte, NC- The Fillmore

The only time I've ever considered the possibility of random chaotic death during a musical event was after my first Crystal Castles show in Washington D.C.'s 9:30 Club.

Notice I said "after"- because this was a "check your survivalist instincts at the door" type of shindig.

Darkness, screams, throbbing bass, distant sounds of breaking glass, and the immense pressure of a crowd moving relentlessly forward while jumping in unison- desperate to become the experience itself.

It's one of the best shows I've ever seen and a surefire reminder of your own pulse.  With a new album due in November, be sure to catch them as they make their rounds.  And if you're in the area, come find me this Thursday in Charlotte, NC as I prepare to experience Crystal Castles decimating the Fillmore.
