This Band Rules! Iceage – NYC 1/25 – 26/13

Iceage is one of my new favorite bands. This young Copenhagen foursome plays a brand of raw post punk thrash I haven’t heard in a long time. Fans of Rites Of Spring and early Joy Division will no doubt appreciate this band’s sound. Iceage is quickly becoming the coolest of the cool with spreads in Interview Magazine and glowing reviews on every hip-ass blog on the god damn Interweb. In short, this is a band you should start telling your friends about now, that way when everyone loves them and they’re fucking shit up all over the main stage at BroChella, you can sneer and say, “I told you so, dorks”. Of course I reviewed the band in TransWorld SURF last month. Bragging.
