The Knife add 2nd NYC show (CMJ) | Tix on sale, MP3s

THE KNIFE IN NORWAY (CRED)
The KnifeThe Knife

One of the most anticipated (and adulated) sets of the weekend came from Swedish siblings Olof and Karin of The Knife. A trip to their webpage bills the Silent Shout tour as “An Audio Visual Experience,” and that is no lie. The duo remains behind a black-tinted scrim for the show’s duration, with futuristic (and abstract) images projected from both sides. Some will scream “Blue Man Group!” and, frankly, they’ll be right. But the body-paint-and-neon mixed with the jittery dance moves and inhuman detachment work with the Swedes’ “mysterious” aura (and awesome material). I hear the duo only intended on playing five shows as The Knife; Øya marked their eighth already, and their first US show at Webster Hall will be the twelfth. This means that we Americans are very lucky; “Heartbeats” will kill any (and every) crowd it meets, and I’m sure that the upcoming indoor-club dates will be well-loved bouts of art-school worship and reefer madness.

The Knife added a 2nd late show at Webster Hall on November 1st. The previously announced show on that date was pushed back two hours to become the early show. Not everyone is happy about that.
