The problem with living in Los Angeles (and it is a really, really good problem to have) is that there is often so much to do that it is physically impossible to be everywhere at once. So it proved back in March when we caught the excellent Veronica Falls at the Troubadour at the expense of missing the equally excellent Danish punk upstarts Iceage. If we figured that would be the last opportunity we would have to see the band in this fair city in 2013, it turns out we were wrong.
As part of Filter Magazine’s 2013 Culture Collide Festival, which takes place in Echo Park at a variety of venues, Iceage will be playing a show at the Echo on Thursday, October 10th, with the highly rated and prolific Sacred Bones act The Men. This definitely will be the last chance we get to see them in LA this year, as they continue to tour in support of their fiery and exhilarating second album, You’re Nothing, which still sounds as good as it did when I raved about it earlier this year.
Tickets to Culture Collide are still available and are an absolute bargain at that price. Iceage come with a tremendous live reputation, and if you want to see the spirit of old-school punk resurrected, you’d be smart to get yourself down there.
