I believe I heard a collective heart shattering in the fans of electronic music yesterday. Alice Glass announced her departure from Crystal Castles via her twitter account on October 8, 2014. If you are even a moderate electronic music fan, you would know that Crystal Castles is seemingly one of the most innovative and pioneering figures in the genre. Fortunately, Alice Glass and Ethan Kath left us all with an amazing catalog of music we can love even in their absence from the music scene. Given the news, what better way to celebrate a Throwback Thursday than to feature Crystal Castles at the Fox Theater Pomona? Crystal Castles blew the minds of many in 2013 at the Fox. Alice and Ethan are no strangers to Pomona, however. The duo also made their way to Pomona in 2011 as well. Below is the set list and a great video of their performance of “Intimate”, courtesy of the shamalp YouTube Channel. Also below is a mix of some of my personal favorite Crystal Castle songs. Cheers!
