Iraqi rock rebels Acrassicauda played Skully's during Scion Rock Fest; now their counterparts from Iran will rock the glitzy Short North nightclub alongside local band Rustmoth. Hypernova isn't the fiery metal band their name implies, but rather a metropolitan pop-rock group that paints in dark shades, like Interpol with less art and more party. It's fitting that they've posted up in New York City, though they haven't left all their native strife behind nor fully embraced their new home. Debut "Through the Chaos" tells of "fairytales that don't have a happy ending" and informs Americans, "You're all so dead inside."
