TPC @ MSG (more by Chris La Putt)
Tokyo Police Club

Having just completed an extensive North American tour supporting Weezer and currently staring down a Dec. 12-23 tour of their native Canada, the four young men of Tokyo Police Club continue to laugh in the face of road fatigue: The band has announced one more run of U.S. dates beginning February 24, 2009 in Providence RI.

In other news, Tokyo Police Club will make its return to the small screen next week, following up a recent DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES cameo with a Dec. 10 late night (or early Dec. 11 for those who feel the need to be technical) performance on the LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON.

Following the completion of the dates below, Tokyo Police Club plans to begin work on the follow up to its acclaimed debut full length Elephant Shell, which was released April 22 of this year on Saddle Creek.

The NYC show is February 25th at Webster Hall (the venue they were supposed to play before they cancelled to go on tour with Weezer). Born Ruffians are opening. Stay tuned for ticket info. All dates and openers below...

I hope this doesn't mean I have to wait four months for them to come back to the NW. Shoot. I'd love to see all three of their opening bands as well.

5:37, i doubt it

the bowery presents is fucked up, theyre really serious about age limits, fucking bitches

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2008 5:54 PM

Perhaps someone can tell me (preferably without being pretentious) what the purpose of an 18+ age limit is?
I mean i get 21+, so that they don't have to worry about underage kids drinking etc. etc.
But what's the difference between an 18 year old and a 16 year old?
Unless they've got some kind of mandatory voting booth set up at the venue i see no reason for it.
