Crystal Castles' Alice Glass attacks concertgoer with Microphone (Video)


Seeing Crystal Castles live is an odd experience; glitch wizard Ethan Kath stays hooded in the background, seeing to the music while singer Alice Glass alternately erupts into fits of rage, stage dives, lays down, humps onstage objects like speaker stacks, and generally gives one the impression she is the victim of some undiagnosed form of autism. However, the oddest thing is the fans, who either stand in the back like they couldn't care less, or mob the front, shouting "Alice" over and over again and reaching towards the singer like they expect to be faith-healed.


This video has surfaced where it looks like Glass admonishes a concertgoer before she  repeatedly hits them with a microphone, "over the head" if you believe the video's title (skip to 1:20 to see it happen). It looks like it might just be one of Glass's weird stage tantrums until you see the band's personal security guard, leather-jacketed and towering, jump into the crowd to chase down, presumably, the person Glass was attacking. Why would she hit a fan like that? The video doesn't make it clear, but I'm guessing it has something to do with some contact like this.

Looks like she's giving the guy a good beat down. Judging by the title of the video, I'm assuming the guy did something to set her off.

Not as awesome as when Jay Reatard punched that dude in the face.

Props to the mic use, but that Reatard shot to the face still owns this.

Alice Glass doesn't put up with any garbage from anyone. The fan must have done something to her to set her off like that. Good for her for defending herself!!

Alice is still a lousy lay.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that Alice Glass can beat me mercilessly with a microphone ANYTIME.

I heard from a reliable source she apologised after the set to the kid. If you can't quite make it out in the video he was only fourteen. Following kicking a guy in the face in NY who had the gaul to take a picture of her while she was performing onstage her lawyer/manager has been keen not to get sued.


she is clearly a mad crackhead.


As if Alice would ever apologize to someone who groped her. The kid should be shot. As someone else said on another website (don't remember right now),

i luff hur<3


she kicked me in the face at Reading fest 07/8 it was the best moment of my life


i swear. I hate anyone who would do that. Its horrifying. They should be beaten, yes. Oh god i idolise her so much.


I love Alice Glass in way impossible to describe. My dream is to meet her. Ah, she is so sweet! *-*


I recommend the genius who wrote this "article" finds something other than autism to describe this kind of behavior. She doesn't act autistic at all. Idiot.
