Crystal Antlers

Despite it being one of a zillion performances they scheduled that week, Crystal Antlers played to a packed room downstairs at Pianos during the Brooklyn Vegan Day Party on Oct 23rd. Combining keys, additional percussion, tape echo, and white wayfarers to their tribal post-punk, Crystal Antlers pulled from their critically-acclaimed EP (out now, catch it at their myspace) and added lots of energy and volume. Fun band to watch, and quite the contrast to a-different-kind-but-still-very-fun Pwrfl POWER that was strummin away upstairs. Friendly Fires also played this show (and that's what motivated me to post this now). Check out more pics and tour dates (CA and Europe), below....
