Preview: Iceage at Bowery Ballroom Tonight

By Will Oliver, October 12th 2014

Iceage

Tonight Copenhagen group Iceage will play Bowery Ballroom, in support of their new album Plowing Into The Field Of Love. The album shows a great deal of growth for the group, who have come quite a way since the brash hard-hitting nature of their debut.

Tickets for the performance tonight are still on sale, and feature opening sets from Helm, Blues Control, and Shells. There are certainly worst ways to spend a Sunday night this fall.

[new]: Iceage – Coalition

By Will Oliver, January 8th 2013

“Coalition” is the first track that Iceage have shared from new album, You’re Nothing. It’s a thrash-worthy punkish number from the young Danish band that they have given away as a free download.

Barely clocking over 2-minutes, this thing is going to be mosh-pit heaven at their live shows.

You’re Nothing comes out February 19 via Matador Records. They will play Brooklyn on January 25 at 285 Kent, as well as New York City on January 26 at Home Sweet Home.

Iceage @ Pitchfork Music Festival (July 15, 2012)

By Will Oliver, July 18th 2012 — with 2 comments

A lot has been said about Iceage, a group of young men from Copenhagen, Denmark. Most of the talk is about their mosh-heavy chaotic live shows that apparently leave many (willingly) bloodied up. I didn’t witness any bloodshed from where I was on Sunday, but someone told me that a few people got roughed up.

So they lived up to their reputation both physically and musically. Their loud buzzing set seemed to end just as it got started. Even with sound problems after the first two songs the band kicked things back into gear, and didn’t look back after. I would definitely check these guys out again, only this time to take a journey into the eye of the storm.

Pitchfork Music Festival 2012: Round-Up

By Will Oliver, July 19th 2012

Now that I’m covering more festivals, I think it’s time that I do a round up that puts a nice end cap on everything. This year was my first time going to Chicago, and the Pitchfork Music Festival. I loved every part of both.

The festival was on the smaller side, which was rather refreshing. I was able to run back and forth from stage to stage, catching at least a good part of every act. Met lots of great people, and ate some good food.

For me, my favorite sets of the weekend in order would have to be Hot Chip, Vampire Weekend, Chromatics @ Lincoln Hall, outside of festival grounds), Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells, Beach House and Japandroids.

It was hot almost all of the time, and rained pretty hard on and off on the first two days. The festival started around 1 and ended around 9-10 each day, which is pretty ideal.

Overall, I had a great time at the festival and definitely would recommend it to anyone who is considering it. Check out my full coverage of the festival right here or check out my posts via a day by day listing in the scheduled order, below.
