A few pre-show technical difficulties didn't prevent CRYSTAL CASTLES from blowing up the Outdoor Theatre stage last night at Coachella in an LED explosion of electro thrash aggression and strobe-lit synthesizers. It was pretty much, so far, the best performance of this still-young music festival in the desert.
show is really the only way to sum up the scene for last night's HARD
Tour stop at the House of Blues. In the above video you can peep Rusko,
who has garnered quite the buzz for himself. Even though it was Crystal
Castles that closed the show, Rusko is the reason it was hella sold out.
The audible distortion isn't because it was recorded on a 3-inch video
camera, but because it was that friggen loud.
