CONTEST – Two Door Cinema Club @ Wrongbar – May 17, 2010
Jamie AdamsonOne thing that Phoenix accomplished last year – besides become one of the biggest bands around, at least for the moment – was make the world safe for stadium-sized, unabashedly melodic and utterly danceable guitar pop with an electronic sheen. Whether the world was ever actually unsafe for such is up for debate, but there’s certainly an appetite for it and Northern Ireland’s Two Door Cinema Club are doing their damnedest to satisfy it.
Their debut Tourist History is filled with immediately catchy, uptempo tunes that are designed to get the indie kids dancing. No, it’s not the most lyrically profound material out there, but come on – have you actually listened to what Thomas Mars is singing on Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix? What it is is fast, fun and well-timed for Summer. Two Door Cinema Club will do just fine, thanks.
They just launched their debut North American tour and will wrap it up on May 17 in Toronto at Wrongbar. Tickets are $10 in advance if you can find any – it may be sold out – but courtesy of Embrace, I have two pairs of tickets to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Two Door Cinema Club” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, May 13.
