tonight in Dallas :: crystal castles + VEGA

Reminder: Crystal Castles + VEGA are in Dallas tonight, and I've just been informed by the Granada Theater that this show is getting close to selling out, so show up early. If you need convincing either way, check out some of Pooneh Ghana's shots from the group's show last night at La Zona Rosa in Austin here.

The doors didn't open until around 9:15, we gave up because we had heard VEGA would be on at 8. We gave our wristbands to some kids that couldn't get a ticket to the sold out show. Hope it was worth it.

I saw your Twitter update and just had to vent.

I drove over an hour from Ann Arbor to see them in Bowling Green, OH last Thursday with my best friend and paid $20 for each of us to get in.

Alice Glass can't sing. They only performed a forty minute set. Her microphone was unhooked for half of the show and she stage dove every chance she got. The male half stood in the background and definitely had everything pre-sequenced.

I've never told off a band in my life before (because I respect that everyone has bad days), but couldn't resist when I bumped into them outside. I did my standard introduction to them and said they played an "okay" set, and asked why only forty minutes more than once. The guy looked shocked and confused while Alice Glass stood silently and smoked.

He claimed they played such a short set so she didn't, and I quote, "kill herself up there" and that is their average show. I asked why $20 for such a lackluster gig and said I've seen much more intense AND longer sets from local bands. Their weaselesque promoter claimed that maybe they should go "inside" where they would be "appreciated", but the place was packed with so many hipsters that no one noticed their existence (for instance, when the DJ before their set played "Waters of Nazareth" by Justice over the nice sound system, over half of the audience thought the band was starting).

Anyway, that was my Crystal Castles experience. I still had fun with my best friend, but it was a shit gig. I hope yours was at least worth a story or two.

FUCK CC!
NEVER STEALING THEIR MP3S AGAIN!
THEY KICKED VEGA OFF THE BILL FOR NO GOOD REASON THEN CANCELLED THE SHOW AND BLAMED IT ON THE SOUND SYSTEM. THESE GUYS ARE ASS HOLES WHO STEAL ALL OF THEIR MUSIC AND DESIGN. GOOGLE IT.

DOWN WITH CRYSTAL CASTLES!

Easily the best show I've ever been to and I go to shows all the fucking time. I will never turn on Crystal Castles. Even if they murder babies.

Even if they murder my future babies.

Apparently the dudes from Vega drank CC's beer at the show in Austin and CC got mad enough to kick them off.

i'm getting conflicting reports from the band's management, the venue, and Vega. if i can sort it all out, i'll post an update, but not sure that's likely. everyone has a completely different account of what happened

Hey just to clarify to all of you guys I am a 42 years old and Mother of one of the band mates of Vega and am so disgusted with what you guys did to those kids. I know them all, they come and spend time in our home no primadonas here they are the most humble and friendly kids I know. I have expensive stuff and nothing has ever disappeared form here and I know my son will never and let me be clear never steal from anyone he has a facebook and actually posted that cc played his guitar ! he was excited that they asked to borrw his guitar and indeed play it wow! My son would take his shirt off to make someone warm:) that makes me so happy to know how great my kid is and to hear that he stole something from a fellow band member is very disturbing for I know how incredible he is and how he loves to see people happy you guys really need to read this I know Alan and Jason as well they are incredible kids whom love music and please their fans! this is the craziest thing I have ever heard I am sick to hear how these guys portrayed Vega just because Vega is going places jelousy is a desease guys grow up and be yourself and dont steep on someone inocent like vegas to make yourself a bigger name. I am done. you can believe anything you want for I know there is something very special about vega!!!!!!!!
Viva vega and go places Alan you more than many can do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WORST LIVE BAND I'VE EVER SEEN. I'm from their hometown and wouldn't defend them if you paid me. Look into the kind of music the dude was making before C.C. Do your research. They are total imposter bandwagoners and have terribe terrible harsh egos.

Do not support Crystal Castles. Let them fade into oblivion quicker than they inevitably will
