Show Pics: Two Door Cinema Club @ Stubb’s (6/1)

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.

Show Preview: Frightened Rabbit @ Stubbs (10/20)

Date 10/20/10
Location Stubbs
Doors 7pm
Tickets $15@ Frontgate

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.
