Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen brags about her f***** up life and rocker ways, but she doesn’t hold a candle to Crystal Castles’ lead singer, Alice Glass!
Taylor Momsen, we’re sick and tired of your desperate efforts to be tough — and if you saw performer Alice Glass in concert, we’re pretty sure you’d immediately rethink how “hard” you really are.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the band Crystal Castles, they are an experimental electronic group who came out of Toronto, Canada a little more than six years ago. Ethan Kath is the main songwriter/producer and 21-year-old Alice Glass is the lead vocalist.
Known for her crazy live performances, Alice is an elusive character who crowd surfs every concert and has been kicked out of her own shows for climbing speaker scaffolds and drinking when she was underage — this is a girl who’s seen it all.
HollywoodLife.com witnessed Crystal Castles up close and personal during the Hard Summer Music Festival at LA Historic State Park Aug. 7 — and 24 hours later, we’re STILL trying to process what we saw. As one concert goer described, watching Alice perform is like witnessing a “possessed vampire gypsy.” She screamed and cried as she threw herself onto the audience, demanding attention from three giant security guards at all times. It was hard to tell whether or not she was “performing” for the enthusiastic crowd, or just experiencing a completely altered state — either way, there’s no denying Alice Glass is the real deal.
Crystal Castles is currently headlining for Hard Festival 2010 — click here to see if they will be in a city near you. Believe us when we tell you, you’ll never have another experience like this!
