So Two Door is one of those bands that I can’t help but like. Call me a sucker for Brit Pop done by Irish kids (cue snarky comment from Nathan).
But what was nice to see was Bad Veins opening for them again. They are on the local label Modern Outsider who are friends of the program.
However, the middle support sucked. Think wedding DJ meets karaoke mash-up. Oh my, it was so bad and made worse when I found out the respectable Clap Your Hands Say Yeah would be in the two-slot for the rest of the tour.
Anyway, I love these pics. Enjoy.
A bit lost in the shuffle of SxSW was a show at La Zona Rosa on the Tuesday before the full on start of the Music Festival. The lineup featured an interesting combination of bands in town for the conference; Bad Veins, Royal Bangs and Two Door Cinema Club. Impressions of each and some pics after the jump, but I’ll let you know now that Two Door was awesome…
Those Glasgow boys from Frightened Rabbit are stopping in town at Stubbs this Wednesday evening. Joining the Scots on stage are solid openers Plants & Animals and Bad Veins. For only $15, that’s a pretty awesome lineup for a pretty low price. I say spend the cash and make it out.
