Icy Demons open for Yeasayer tonight at the Aladdin Theater, and if you've never heard of Icy Demons until precisely this moment, let me clue you in. It's a band spearheaded by Mssrs. Blue Hawaii (AKA Griffin Rodriguez of Bablicon) and Pow Pow (AKA Christopher Powell of Man Man and Need New Body). Their stuff runs the gamut from rock to bitsynth to experimental to dance to generous pop, and the stylistic breadth reminds me just a little of TV on the Radio--if Sitek and Co. weren't so damn serious and popped some happy pills from time to time. Check out Icy Demons' tour blog here, and listen to a track below.
