British/Spanish group the Crystal Fighters, made up of Sebastian, Gilbert, Graham, Mimi and Laure, have been praised back in Europe for years now for their unique blend of techno and punk with Basque sounds and instruments native to their home like txalaparta and the txistu. The U.S. got their first taste of them back in April with the release of their LP, Star Of Love. Their North American tour is underway and they have two shows in NY. On May 23, they’ll be at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg with Icky Blossoms at 8 p.m. and on May 24, they’ll be at Le Baron. Ticket prices vary.
