Eternal Summers start off the show tonight at Union Transfer. The Virginia trio continues to tour in support of its 2012 LP Correct Behaviour, although a new album may be in the works judging by the fact that the shoegazey punk band played several unreleased songs last time they were in Philly. Despite their carefree name, Eternal Summers ventured into some darker waters on Behaviour with vocalist / guitarist Nicole Yun’s scratchy guitar riffs and drummer Daniel Cundiff’s manic beat-keeping, though Yun’s airy vocals keep things untethered on most tracks. Tickets and information for their set tonight with The Presidents of The United States of America and You Scream I Scream can be found here. Below, watch Eternal Summers perform “You Kill” live at MACRoCk 2012.
Experimental electronic duo Crystal Castles take over The Electric Factory tonight for a show with HEALTH. The Canadian producers, who have an affinity for glitchy horror movie sound effects and ravey bass lines, relocated to Warsaw, Poland to record their upcoming record Crystal Castles III due out November 8th. Tickets are $30 through Ticketmaster for the all ages show, with doors opening at 8:00 p.m. Below, listen to Crystal Castles’ track “Not in Love” featuring the vocals of Robert Smith.
