Bi-coastal darkwave duo Cold Cave to play Tampa’s Crowbar Ybor City

Desperation. Honesty. Resolve. Those are three hallmarks of the Cold Cave catalog, and while Wesley Eisold has spent the last decade releasing EPs in lieu of full-lengths, you can’t help but think that he’ll spend some time at Crowbar playing material from the band’s debut LP, Love Comes Close, in honor of its 10th anniversary.

Fans of bands like New Order, 39 Clocks, The Cure and Velvet Underground likely have this show circled on their calendars, and we’re here to remind you to get there early to catch a set from Detroit electro outfit Adult., which is playing in support of a new 7-inch (“Subsurface/Coming Apart”) that explores what the band describes as “the banality of domesticity and the status quo.”

Cold Cave w/Adult./Sextile. Fri. March 8, Crowbar, Ybor City. crowbarybor.com.
