It was, apparently, difficult to get near the stage at Public Assembly during last night's Iceage show, their debut on American soil. I was unaware. Here's some footage I shot from my easily-attained spot on the side of the stage. Watch a monsoon of camera flashes and fist-pumps, and at the very end, the singer drops into the crowd. Photo of the setlist, below. Iceage were dark, chaotic, and fun, but would I expect anything less of a Sacred Bones showcase? I enjoyed The Men, Prurient, Pop 1280, and Cult of Youth just as much — if not, more.
Lookout for a full Northside report here on Monday.
