Tokyo Police Club + Nevada Color Giveaway
Believe it or not, it has been almost five years since Tokyo Police Club last hit Pittsburgh. The Toronto-based quartet hit the scene back in 2006, and have since released four albums. Their most recent album, Forcefield, dropped in March, and the band will be touring in support of the release this fall. They have quite the busy season ahead, with a US/Canadian tour and additional dates at two Riot Fest locations, as well as October’s Halifax Pop Explosion. They’ll be playing Altar Bar September 9 with local support from Nevada Color, a band on the rise here in Pittsburgh and Beyond.
We last spoke with them in May after having released their Adventures LP, and they’ve since been writing “a lot of new material,” according to Adam Valen, the band’s guitarist. He’s also quite excited at the chance to open for such a reputable band!
Playing this show means a lot to us. Not only is Tokyo Police Club a band we pull influence from, but I saw them at a festival last year in Cincinnati and they were spot on! Definitely not a band to miss live. With that, we’re playing in front of a lot of new people that we think our music will really appeal to! This band definitely comes the closest to our sound of all the bands we’ve played with. With that said, I think the energy will stay pretty positive and high throughout the night.
If you want to catch them sooner, they’re opening for Miniature Tigers at CMU’s CFA lawn on August 30th at 6:30PM.
You can win tickets to their Altar Bar gig below, or you can purchase them here. Tickets range from $17-$20 and the show begins at 8PM.
