Ah, the good ol' days. As much as we love our 21st century mod cons, nostalgia creeps in when we're filling the tank with $4 per gallon gas or shelling out $50 for a concert ticket. Crazy Horse 2.0 lives in a sweet spot in the middle: The venue has been updated, but sometimes its admission prices are less than the cost of a combo meal with a side of cool.
Case in point: Copenhagen, Denmark-based trio The Foreign Resort, which is itself a purveyor of old-meets-new. Listening to TFR's melancholy goth-rock/new-wave is a little like going home--if Robert Smith was part of your teen-angst soundtrack. TFR is worth the cover cost alone, but $5 at the door also includes a night of atmospheric, hypnotizing, danceable synth sounds from locals Star Warrior, PoloMirror and DJ Louie Bash.
