The brittle, unashamedly nineties joyride (think the best of Weezer, Pavement, Modest Mouse, and...er...Pavement all filing on to the same stage at once) that is NYC outfit Cymbals Eat Guitars' forte got the live treatment this past Sunday evening, churning the basement bandbox that is the Cake Shop in to a sweaty, delirious mess of screeching vocals, gnarly guitar riffs, and ship shape drum and bass. Why are their mountains? It's a question the band's superbly slapdash performance answered as it unfurled over the course of the evening. They are there to climb, silly...which is exactly what we're anticipating this band to do over the next few months in anticipation of the proper re-release of their stellar debut, Why There Are Mountains, later this Fall on Sister's Den Records.

We of course where there on Sunday, our cameras locked and loaded. Which means all of you should expect to see the concert video find its' way on to the site in the weeks to come. For now, have a look at some photos, hop on over to the band's MySpace (offered below) to hear a little of these promising up and comers for yourself, or maybe even pick up a ticket to see them in the flesh. We got a slew of tour dates for you below. - David Pitz
