Magic Spells and Crystal Castles

Things you should never do when you have a really nasty hangover: hang out at Macy's Herald Square, have your eyeballs nearly seared out by overembellished Ed Hardy Bags, or listen to the music of Sean Paul, which has been proven to cause epileptic seizures. These are all unfortunately things I had to endure today on my way to a meeting in spite of having the most massive hangover after our gig at Webster Hall last night, featuring Boys Noize (who, by the way, for some reason has a huge male model following???).  After all of that, the last thing you would think I would want to do is listen to more pulsing electronic music.  Yet I'm so excited about the party that we are doing next Friday at Webster Hall, featuring a DJ set with Crystal Castles, that I've been listening to them nonstop all afternoon, pounding headache and all.  I lovelovelove this band, and whether you like hardcore DJ music or not, you cannot deny that lead singer Alice Glass is totally girlcrush worthy, with her Louise Brooks messy bob, and old school riotgrrrl style.  Her and her partner Ethan Kath also get extra points for contributing to the soundtrack for Bruce LaBruce's gay Zombie horror flick Otto; or Up With Dead People (which GnarJen wrote about here), with their song Crimewave.  Anyway, we are giving you plenty of advanced notice here (not common on this blog, not common at all), so please write it in your calendars.  Mark The Cobrasnake will be joining us for the night as a guest host taking pictures, and if you stop by our table, we'll make you a drink.  Make sure to say 66Sick at the door for free entry, as usual!

DAMN yo, I didn't know of this woman but now I'm almost girl-crushing hard enough to ponder how I could get my arse up to NY to go to your party! If you prodded me just a little bit the idea would probably stick in me and develop to full fruition!

I saw crystal castles last year and I was right at the front with Alice draped all over the stage like she does, it was beautiful. She is so crushworthy
