How to Destroy Angels

One could sense the electricity in the air when the lights dimmed at the Fox. The curtain finally pulled back to reveal streams of electric lights four sheets deep as Alessandro Cortini, Atticus Ross, Mariqueen Maandig, Trent Reznor and Rob Sheridan worked in the shadows conjuring up the opening notes of “The Wake-Up.”

How to Destroy Angels refer to themselves as a collective with all members contributing equally to their visual and auditory aesthetic. They recently added Cortini to their live band to help take on some bass guitar duties as well as extra synthesizer wizardry. All the members were hunkered over their work stations and grooved in time to the snarling synthesizer bass of “Keep It Together.” – [OC Weekly]

Everyone is gearing up for the madness that is Coachella, which especially true for the bands. Case in point, How to destroy angels_ and DIIV, who teamed up to play The Fox in Pomona, CA last night (4/10) before their respective appearances in the desert. For their first ever live performance, Trent Reznor and crew played through incandescent cords that stretched the entire height of the stage, performing tracks from Welcome Oblivion. Due to the XL stage production of the HTDA gang, DIIV performed in front of it, using the giant stage curtain as a backdrop.

After Coachella, the Htda_ tour heads this way, playing two NYC area shows on April 28 at Wellmont Theatre (tickets) and April 29 at Apollo Theatre (sold out). More pictures from Fox Theater, as well as the Htda_ setlist, are below.
