Sunday night's show was originally booked at the tiny Capitol Hill vintage store Cairo, but presale tickets sold at such a rapid pace that it was moved to Vera's more accommodating space. A large part of the draw and excitement has to be credited to Abe Vigoda's latest release, Crush, the L.A. quartet's fourth full-length record. Crush finds the band having suddenly left behind the "tropical punk" quirk of their earlier releases and instead relying more on heavy, pressing synths, clipped drum-machine beats, and frontman Michael Vidal's shadowy vocals for a moody but still pulsing and energetic sound. The album's first single, the excellent "Throwing Shade," is flickering and skittish; its accompanying music video features glitter, eyeliner, and men crying. If you're thinking gothy Cure circa Disintegration, you're not far off the mark. It's melodrama that you can move to.
