Groundbreaking electronic duo Crystal Castles brandished controlled chaos Saturday April 27 at Fox Theater Oakland, with featured acts Doldrums & Buried Child setting the stage. Still touring in support of their excellent 2012 record (III), their live show tiptoes on the edge of bedlam, utilizing intense strobe lights that flash to the beat & intensity of Ethan Kath’s noisy, dystopian hooks. Front-woman Alice Glass whips her hair without restraint and smokes cigarettes while dancing, singing & feverishly trashing away. And as you can see below, Ethan Kath has one hell of a photographer stare-down.
