TV on the Radio @ First Avenue

From Sunday's A-List: "Even when they're singing 'Cover your balls/'Cause we swing kung fu,' there's something hymn-like and high-minded--sacred, even--that results from the falsetto wailing and layered electronic loops of Brooklyn-based TV on the Radio. Will their noise-drenched cascade of percussion and hushed choral crescendos turn First Avenue into an avant-garde Crystal Cathedral of indie rock? They definitely have the raw material for it--their latest release, Return from Cookie Mountain, has been topping charts and top-10 lists all over the universe. If their complex mix of overlapped vocals and multi-tracked samples sounds as good onstage as they do coming out of the stereo, First Avenue might have to be desanctified afterward." Check out video of TVotR with Trent Reznor and Peter Murphy (of Bauhaus) here. With Grizzly Bear. 18+. $13/$15 at the door. 8:00 p.m.
