Crystal Stilts @ Less Artists More Condos (more by Gabi Porter)
Crystal Stilts

NYC's Crystal Stilts have four New York City-area shows on the horizon. The band, fresh off '09 shows in NYC, Europe, and a NYC-to-SXSW tour, will open for Comet Gain at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sunday, April 12th. (Tickets are still on sale.)

Two weeks later, the band plays Maxwell's in Hoboken on Sunday, April 26th for's 4th Anniversary Party with Mahogany and Motel Motel. (Tickets are on sale.)

Then, Friday, May 8th, Crystal Stilts play a Deli Magazine/After The Jump show with Blank Dogs, Religious Knives, and Dinowalrus at the Bell House. (Tickets are on sale.)

Finally, after touring Europe at the end of May, Crystal Stilts will play a Cake Shop show with The Pains of Being Pure of Heart on June 18th.

The Crystal Stilts' Bell House show (5/08) is not to be confused with the
Crystal Antlers show happening three days later at the same venue. (Tickets for that show are still on sale.)

In between the two "Crystal" shows, the Gowanus venue will host Horse Feathers with Joe Pug on May 9th (tix) and Chairlift, Takka Takka and The Secret Life of Sofia on May 10th (tix). Chairlift has lots of other 2009 dates, too.

whens the last time anyone heard a fuzz rock record sound as crisp and brilliant as the one these chums puts out last year? They are onto something very nice.

^^Not to be confused with Crystal Shit, my favorite Doors tribute band!

"I hope those guys have a good sense a' humor and don't take us into court."

Haha, you're awesome - great reference.

The show tonight (5/8) was fair, but The Crystal Shit failed to differentiate themselves from the opening bands. I can't remember a lead singer with less personality. I appreciate their taste in music, but these dorks will never make it. Sorry.
