Iceage Play Emo's, Can't Buy Smokes

If you wanna ride the blog-wave and got on the front end of the hype then you best get thyself to Emo's tomorrow night to catch Iceage. These Danish art-punks are touring the U.S. for the first time and most of them are too young to buy cigarettes. Their LP, New Brigade even landed them a spot on Stereogum's list of the Top 20 Albums of 2011. How's that for blog-buzz? I would compare their sound to, maybe HEALTH? It has a punk aesthetic but it's also full of dark-goth keys and sad, moody vocals. Expect lots of glowering from the stage and some really loud guitars. On record it sounds like there will be a mix of live drums and v-drums so I'll be interested to see how the whole thing turns out on Emo's inside stage. If you, too, went to check out how 17 year old dudes from Denmark rock out you should grab yourself a ticket or two, they're only $8 and it's not sold-out yet.

Normally, this is the part of the post, in which, I'll elaborate on the show and give you more details about the band and such. However, due to the fresh-sheen on the metaphorical afro of this line-up all I can really give you for further info is who else is on the bill. I don't really know much about these artists but feel free to click the links and educate all of us!
