Housse de Racket Plays Club Congress Tomorrow Night

Posted By on Wed, Apr 11, 2012 at 4:00 PM

Housse de Racket combines the danceable sounds of modern techno with the electro-pop of '80s New Wave, with vocals that closely resemble that of modern alt-rock star Mark Foster of Foster the People. Their song, "Discobelle" reminds me of something that would have fit perfectly into John Hughes's '80s-era movie soundtracks like Breakfast Club or Pretty in Pink.

Are you ready for an '80s throwback with a modern twist?

Guitarist Pierre Leroux and drummer Victor Le Masne of the French duo, Housse de Racket, come to Club Congress at 9 p.m. on Thursday in support of album, "Alesia."

Here's what Chris of the Another Rainy Saturday music blog says about the band:

They make a glorious noise together, with Leroux doing much of the music, getting a lot of sound from his guitar — and large collection of distortion pedals. LeMasne provides a steady, but powerful drum beat and unbeatable mustache.
