Hot Chip at Highline Ballroom in 2010 (more by VIncent Cornelli)
Hot Chip

As mentioned, Hot Chip are currently touring in support of their solid new album, In Our Heads. The North American portion of that tour kicks off in Minneapolis this Friday (7/13) brings the band to NYC for shows at Prospect Park on July 18 with Gang Gang Dance and Terminal 5 on July 20 with Chromatics. The Prospect Park show is sold out, but if you weren't able to get tickets, you can watch it from the comfort of your own home when it streams live on NPR.

Tickets are still available for the T5 show, and as recently mentioned, we're giving away a pair. Details on that are HERE.

For the North American run, the band will be joined by guest drummer Jim Orso of former DFA labelmates Holy Ghost! (Hot Chip are now on Domino). Updated dates are listed below.

Right you are 1:09. I was going to say, if you want to be at the show instead of sitting at home watching it you can find tickets easy now at the usual places. Wait till next week and you will find them for under face.

I remember there were tickets selling for below face outside when they played SummerStage on the tour for the last album

Hope no one gets stabbed by there silly glasses or anorexic bones. Or just bored to death.

Hot Chip is one of few bands that actually have a sound that gets better the more you listen to it. Compare with Cut Copy.. I started listening to both at the same time, now I can't stand Cut Copy so much.

Jim ORSO is the drummer!

Nerdy, unsexy white music for nerdy, unsexy white people. Easy to understand why it sold out in Brooklyn.
