Though they first burst onto the scene as the latest Brits making drug music you’d actually want to listen to on drugs back in ‘07, the Klaxons flip the aggro switch with their latest, Surfing the Void. The record itself suffers from a few sophomore clichés, but the band’s live show still demands you party just a little harder. Squeezing an act who makes as big a noise as the Klaxons into a cozy space like Chop Suey has the makings of one of those magical rock club nights where heat, inebriants and raw energy will have patrons turning themselves over to the warm wash of shared musical adore. In other words, FUN. With Baby Monster. MA’CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
