Crystal Castles / HEALTH at Hollywood Paladium, 10/21/2012
Crystal Castles

...it was not until the lights dimmed and the first thrum of new single "Plague" began to hum out of the stage speakers that the crowd came alive with an energy that would not dim until the house lights came up again at the end of the night.

Ethan Kath and Alice Glass took the stage mechanically, and Kath settled behind the stage setup that would remain his post for much of the show.

Glass, the dark-eyed, bright-haired singer whose mysterious appearance, demeanor, and back story has inspired a cultish following, clutched the mic stand and crouched on the stage as if in a trance, until she hoisted herself up and began singing the opening lines of the song.

And from there, the energy level of the show skyrocketed. During songs, Glass would cross over the barrier between the photo pit and the audience and crowd surf, as the band's tour manager and venue staff frantically tried to keep up with her. - [Neon Tommy]

Crystal Castles, who hit Roseland a few weeks back, played Hollywood Paladium on Sunday (10/21) on their current tour with HEALTH and are currently making their way up the West Coast, hitting Portland, OR tonight (10/24). Check out pics from both bands below (we missed openers Kontravoid), along with a list of remaining tour dates.

Wow, I would've loved to have been there. Even if no one is playing their instrument on stage. Who cares!

Am I the only one that thinks its lame when none of the musicians are playing their instruments? Its one thing if they don't have a bassist and use play back, thats ok. But to be up on stage with literally an instrument in your hand and not be able to play it is just sad.
