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 gets the live treatment, churning the basement bandbox that is the Cake Shop
into 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
