CSS, Ms Mr, IO Echo

MITCH LILLIE
8 pm., Wednesday June 19 | $22.50.
Crystal Ballroom
1332 W Burnside St.
 
[ELECTRO] Damn, we were sexy in 2006. Peaches was asking for her bush to be impeached, Klaxons were inciting nu-rave hookups and CSS, comprising five sex-positive amateur musicians from São Paolo, was thrusting onstage in neon leotards. But, in the case of the latter, those leotards are now wearing thin, literally and figuratively. The band’s name, Cansei de Ser Sexy, translates as “tired of being sexy,” and the band now sounds so tired, it’s barely bothering to get out of bed. See its latest nonsensical party-rock single, “Hangover,” from this month’s Planta, featuring lead singer Lovefoxxx sing-shouting invectives at former bandmate Adriano Cintra, the only original member with any previous musical experience, who left the band in 2011, citing the others’ fame-inflated egos.
