This is a past event.

!!!, Breakfast Mountain 

When: Tue., May 31, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $15
Truth be told, we've been a little harsh on !!! (pronounced "chk chk chk"—why do we still need to explain this?) over the years. Following their exhilarating debut, the funk-heavy Brooklyn-via-Sacramento ensemble stalled out, leaving us to pen less-than-flattering pieces on the band (one such headline was "Schtick! Schtick! Schtick!"—god, we're such dicks, dicks, dicks). But with the release of Strange Weather, Isn't It?, their 2010 Warp Records debut, it's clear that !!! should be commended for their Andrew WK-esque commitment to keeping the party going strong, and the band's sheer longevity, easily outlasting the early aughts' short-lived dance-punk explosion. Considering that LCD Soundsystem has shuffled off this mortal coil, we all just need to dance and not overthink things for once. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
