Young the Giant

MICHAEL MANNHEIMER
8 pm., Friday December 06 | Sold out.
Crystal Ballroom
1332 W Burnside St.
 
[POPULAR SCIENCE] I hate to make Young the Giant the poster band for everything I hate about life, but fuck: Just one listen to the band’s self-titled 2011 album makes me want to quit writing about music forever. Easily palatable to a fault, smeared of anything that could come off as offensive or original or, hell, interesting, it’s bland rock music for boring people to have bad sex to. Young the Giant is only “indie” or “alternative” to record-label executives who are trying to market a stale hipness to ex-jocks who couldn’t make it halfway through the last Broken Bells record. Seriously! But popular is popular. Yep, I’m an asshole, but at least I have good taste.
