TDCC

Two Door Cinema Club start their first tour of North America tonight at the Troubador in L.A. and next week will be here in NYC to play two shows (it was just one when the tour was first announced). They are at The Bell House (previously Union Hall) on Tuesday, 5/11, get tickets) and Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday, 5/12 (sold out).

The Irish trio's debut, Tourist History, was released over here last week and its ten songs of jaunty, anthemic pop that fall somewhere between their Glassnote labelmates Phoenix (who they've covered, an MP3 above) and mid-00s UK indie (Foals, Bloc Party, Editors). If not especially original, TDCC write some undeniably catchy songs, check out the MP3s above.

Millionyoung and Dinosaur Featers open the Brooklyn show. All tour dates and a couple videos are below...
