When: Thu., Sept. 8, 8:30 p.m. 2016
Absorbing influences from many of rock’s most influential mavericks, Staten Island rockers Cymbals Eat Guitars create a sound that’s as intricate as it is raw. Lead singer and guitarist Joseph D’Agostino keeps things dynamic by deftly oscillating between tenderness and sheer fury. Whether they’re sharing the stage with big names such as the Flaming Lips or rocking out at off-the-grid basement shows in New Jersey, CEG work their audience into a frenzy. Cymbals Eat Guitars drop their fourth album, Pretty Years, mid-month and kick off a massive North American tour this week. That includes a stop on Thursday, September 8, at Signal Kitchen in Burlington. Burlington bands Sleeping In and Villanelles are also on the bill.
Price: $12/14. AA
