The Ticket gig of The week

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

It be­came clear, about half an hour be­fore Two Door Cin­ema Club took to the stage in Dublin’s Tri­pod on Wed­nes­day, what type of gig it was go­ing to be. Drinks fly­ing, hands wav­ing, hips shak­ing – all be­fore the first chord was strummed. Ire­land’s cool kids have clearly lis­tened to the band’s de­but al­bum, Tourist His­tory, enough times to be as well-versed in its lyrics as they should be in their Leav­ing Cert English syl­labus, judg­ing by the sin­ga­long that en­sued to the band’s stomp­ing, an­themic gui­tar rhythms. Ones to watch in 2011? Only if you’ve had your eyes closed in 2010. Words: Rose­mary Mac Cabe
