Tokyo Police Club

Tokyo Police Club plan to cover and release 10 songs in 10 days next week as part of a Polaroid-sponsored project...

"We want to know which track YOU want us to cover for each day of our 10 days of covers from 2001 - 2010. Tweet your favorite song from the 3 options listed on our site Polaroid.com/TokyoPoliceClub, including #TPC10Covers and a hashtag for the year of the cover i.e. #TPCcovers2001. We'll choose a random tweeter each day through 9/2 to win a prize bundle including a copy of our 'Champ' CD, vinyl and a signed 7"" [TPC]
Last night the band headlined the free show at House of Vans with Big Freedia and others. A set of pictures from their set is in this post.

Coming up the band doesn't have many shows scheduled, but one is at the new AV Festival coming to Chicago on September 10th & 11th with HUM, Archers of Loaf, The Thermals and more. All TPC dates and more pics from House of Vans below...

I hate free shows. I hate people that go to free shows.

the crowd during against me!'s set was absolutely atrocious. i saw some instances of violence, intolerance and immaturity that i wish i hadn't and can never unsee.

that said, those that stuck around for TPC were fantastic and embraced the band very well. i've seen TPC close to 10 times now and they're one band that never, ever disappoints. they feed off of their audience extremely well, and last night was no exception.

@6:48 - i didn't mean in the pit - i was referring to the gay bashing that took place outside, followed by the kids smiling for pictures with the dude laid out bleeding from the head while EMTs made sure he wasn't paralyzed.

different victims, for the record - but similar disregard for humanity.

House of Vans is a "clown shit" scene.

Did Against Me! play any songs before they started to really really suck?

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2011 10:05 AM

Against Me! played mostly old shit. Did anyone over 18 actually stay for TPC? lol

Highlight of this awful show was watching a gang of skateboards jump some big oaf. It was awesome. WorldStarHipHop.
