We started at Urban Outfitters (Which is totally like, our favorite store ever!!) near University of Texas at Austin for the free party they were throwing that afternoon. The first band we to play was Crystal Stilts who I guess are okay; if a) you are looking for Velvet Underground/ Suicide esq background music for a heroin induced orgy, b) you listen to aesthetic choices and atmosphere in your pop songs more than melody and lyrics or c) you like kind of boring music. It’s not that they are a bad band, they are totally inoffensive and fine, but there is nothing innovative here and no real sense of urgency or showmanship to make up for that.
