The TickeT gig of The week

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Inside -

Look­ing like Ivy League stu­dents and per­form­ing like wound-up toys on a diet of Ever Ready bat­ter­ies and vi­ta­min pills, Ban­gor’s Two Door Cin­ema Club played two sold-out gigs at Dublin’s Olympia last week­end. To say the gig was a kind of au­ral or­gasm from start to fin­ish (last­ing an un­prece­dented 50 min­utes, too!) is ac­tu­ally not too much of an un­der­state­ment; it is, how­ever, more pro­saic to say that this gig (we went to the Fri­day show) was a tri­umph of sub­stance over hype. Crack­ing songs. A 50-minute gig. Per­fect. Words: Tony Clayton-Lea Pho­to­graph: Pa­trick O’Leary
