We’d be glad to write off Crystal Castles as neon-hoodie-scene succubi, but their second eponymous record was just too sharp, too similar to lucid dreaming. Their newly evolved sonic distortion and blissful melancholia has cemented them as the band too good to hate. Tonight’s show at Terminal 5 is sold out, don’t you know, so take pleasure in the mysterious chemistry of Ethan Kath and Alice Glass as they scream and discombobulate to their hearts’ content. With Teengirl Fantasy.
