Live Photos: Behind the Scenes with CRX

CRX frontman (and Strokes guitarist) Nick Valensi sold t-shirts at The Bowery Ballroom when he was 17, but last week he commanded a packed crowd with a show that reveled in ‘70s-bred synth hooks and careening melodies. His 5-piece band released debut album New Skin on October 28th, featuring production from Queens of the Stone Age bandleader Josh Homme. That combination of svelte guitar, glammy excess and driving rhythms also led to an opening slot for Beck on his latest tour. Paste photographer Drew Reynolds caught CRS during their NYC stop for some portraits and shots during soundcheck and the main show. CRX is currently touring throughout the American west.
