Crystal Castles at the Ogden Theatre, with HEALTH, 10/17/12


CRYSTAL CASTLES / HEALTH @ OGDEN THEATRE | 10/17/12

Crystal Castles (Ethan Kath and Alice Glass) carry out the perfect combination of disaffected mystery; the duo's artistic rebelliousness is a coalescence of beat-driven abrasion, sterile melody and the ability to not give one fuck if anyone in the audience is there or not. But last night at the packed Ogden Theatre, the crowd wanted to be there, grasping at any chance to help carry Glass through each of her ceremonial stage dives.
