Dillinger, moving in speeds unfathomable by the naked eye
The Dillinger Escape Plan played Irving Plaza as part of an ongoing tour to promote Option: Paralysis, their new LP due out this week on Season of Mist. Joined by DC's Darkest Hour, the tech-y Animals as Leaders, and the atrocious iwrestledabearonce, the band played a set that varied across their entire career to the backdrop of flashing coordinated LEDs. Both awesome and an eyesore, it went along with the band's blitzkreig set and malfunctioning computer aesthetic (maybe they got some tips from their friend Trent Reznor)... Incredible set from these greats.
