Trying to gain entrance to Sunday night's MIIKE SNOW show at the House of Blues was
sort of tantamount to trying sneak across the Mexican border with a bag
of smack in each pocket. A little before 9 pm they had a line of people waiting outside that stretched down Lansdowne Street, from the club's doors to just about
to the corner of Brookline Avenue.
The elusive Swedish producers-turned-indie-pop-hitmakers
Miike Snow have worked hard at translating a subdued electronic debut
album into a rousing live performance, but their sold-out appearance at
the Paradise this past Wednesday proved that the transition can be a
bumpy and confusing one.
