Countdown to Coachella part 6 - 4 Days...
It's getting oh so close...
Well, they caused a whirlwind in the UK when NME declared them the "founders of New Rave". Then just as everyone became nauseated at the term 'New Rave', the Klaxons stated that they indeed were not 'New Rave'. Whatever genre they do or should belong to, the fact is their music is pretty damn good. At times fresh and modern with a clever take on psychedelia. But are they good live? I'd pay the admission to find out.

No word yet on whether or not NEKO CASE will be joining the Pornographers for their set, but she IS playing the Stagecoach Festival at the exact same site one week later. The one time I caught these guys live Neko was not there, but it was still a really fun show.

For more about these guys, just read every other music blog in the universe. There's nothing new I could say that hasn't been said a zillion times over. Arcade Fire are brilliant live, so just make sure you're there.
