In 2015, experimental electronic/dark synth act Crystal Castles (largely the creative vehicle of producer Ethan Kath), began releasing its first music with vocalist Edith Frances, who replaced original vocalist Alice Glass not long before that. Glass' departure from Crystal Castles, for personal and professional reasons, left some fans a bit shook over the project’s future. However, Crystal Castles’ heavy, prismatic, and overall gnarly 2016 album Amnesty (I) quickly blew away any concerns that the noise-worshiping band with the near-cult following would lose a step. Opening the show will be Austin/Houston outfit Night Drive, which deals in some of the same experimental electronic currency as Crystal Castles, but leans more towards synth-pop.
