Their summer U.S. tour has already drawn attention from the New Yorker and the New York Times, as their first U.S. performance sold out in Brooklyn. After hearing all the hype from friends who've seen them play in Europe or finally got their hands on the album, I was stoked to see that they're playing at the Project Lodge this Friday night with local power-violence/hardcore band Deep Shit and Cleveland post-punk outfit Pleasure Leftists.
Whether or not Iceage is actually doing something fresh and innovative with punk rock, you should come see for yourself what the buzz is all about.
The Project Lodge. 817 E. Johnson Street. 8:30 pm. 8 dollars.
