Iceage Brings the Goods to The Regent Theater

"Not a single ass was seated for the band as they seemed to serenade the crowd softly with heavy jams and a gritty disposition."

Surfbort hit the stage to an exponentially growing crowd, visibly disoriented by the downward slope of the theater. It was Monday. We were all a little dazed from the work week kickoff and the band’s opening volley may have thrown us a little farther back – at least for a moment. “Les Be in Love” took it down a notch, with vocalist Dani Miller surfing the crowd like a light wave of sludge.

 

Black Lips had the house packed by the time they took the stage. The Atlanta garage outfit pulled from their classic records before introducing a new gem for a possible country album they’re recording. The pit opened wide like a grungy Sarlacc, pulling most in while throwing the sweat outward.

Iceage is touring on their latest record, Beyondless, out now on Matador, and brought the goods to an ecstatic crowd. The aspiring sound engineer I met outside couldn’t be more excited as he went on about the “perfect evolution” of the band as they rolled out the new stuff. “You’re in for a seriously great show, man,” he tells me as I refer him to the greatness of GUM on his phone. Not a single ass was seated for the band as they seemed to serenade the crowd softly with heavy jams and a gritty disposition. The lighting was alright.
