...and they rocked! They opened for Cold War Kids in Milwaukee. I suggest people check out their (probably) early set on Friday at Coachella. Very frenetic show - the songs were short, the band was jittery (like either too much coffee or meth - I hope the former), but they made a hell of a racket! It reminded me of Wire or Gang of Four. I loved it. A short set - 30 minutes.

Cold War Kids were OK. I felt like I was at a Baptist church. Very soulful, bluesy gospelish sound. Singer has a great voice.

It was the nature of the experiment done on you.

The Rave Bar. Pretty crowded (200 people). I don't know why they didn't have it in the basement room.

I'm seeing them next week with Cold War Kids. Sadly the show was moved to a bigger venue, still excited either way though!

I have heard that Tokyo Police Club has solen the show from Cold Wark Kids every date on this tour haha. I'm not a huge fan of Cold War Kids, but I can't wait to see Tokyo Police Club on day 1 this year.

Am I missing something about Tokyo Police Club? I listened to thier recording, and found them very boring.
Then I heard all these rave reviews of them live. So I have checked out many live videos... and I am just as bored, if not more.
What is it about them that everyone is digging?

Everyone's taste is different - I personally like that style of indie guitar band. To each their own.

Ok it's fair to say you don't like them, but to say they are boring is rubbish. Marc Anthony is boring. Norah Jones is boring. Tokyo Police Club has plenty of energy, even if it makes your ears hurt.

At one point or another I was kind of upset at something and they were the only reason I wanted to go to Coachella anymore. Haha.

The day that I bought tickets to see them in Omaha, they dropped off of the lineup :(

But I was still really impressed with the Cold War Kids, they definitely made up for it.

I saw the same show in Madison last night. I had heard a few Tokyo Police Club songs and was not impressed. They come across much better live. Unique style. Most songs are 2 to 3 minutes and end abruptly.
