Tokyo Police Club w/ Hollerado & Dinosaur Bones
Friday, April 1, 2011
Canadian Rockers are at it again. No, we’re not talking about the Arcade Fire, we’re talking about Tokyo Police Club. Keep up people! This band has had it right from the start. When taking a glimpse at their discography, it’s pretty underrated. From their inaugural EP, A Lesson in Crime, which sports such gems as “Citizens of Tomorrow” and “Nature of the Experiment”, to last year’s Champ, which offers lead single “Breakneck Speed” and other favorites such as “Bambi”, it’s apparent that this is a band that has yet to disappoint its fans.”
— Phillip Roffman, Consequence of Sound
Tokyo Police Club has been tabbed to play the upcoming NHL Heritage Classic in Calgary. TPC will perform during the first intermission of the outdoor match Sunday between the Flames and Montreal Canadiens.
Hollerado have become one of the most lovable groups on the planet thanks to insanely catchy and energetic guitar pop, boundless creativity and a relentless DIY approach.
Hollerado’s songs combine the melody and energy of 90s Weezer and Supergrass with the irreverent wit of Stephen Malkmus and their shows that have been described as elementary school recess with beer and piñatas and acid at a house party.
Hollerado has been nominated for two Independent Music Awards — Live Artist/Group of the Year of the Year and Video of the Year.
While their moniker may elicit thoughts of a prehistoric past, Toronto indie-rock quintet Dinosaur Bones are nothing but forward-thinking, both with their musical ambition and continual growth as a band. Fans can expect more of the sound that Montreal’s HOUR weekly proclaims as “packed with feeling … whose delicate darkness almost belies its pop sensibility.”
