Mp3s: Tokyo Police Club in Boston

In anticipation of Tokyo Police Club's return to the Boston area next Monday, Oct. 16th at the Middle East in Cambridge (with Art Brut & The Spinto Band), I offer you aural evidence of their previous visit from just a couple months back. It's a great set, and you can listen guilt-free thanks to the band's complete coolness with sharing it up...

Tokyo Police Club

Some TPC links...
  • While their debut 7-song EP, "A Lesson in Crime", has been available in Canada for a few months, it finally saw a U.S. release last week. Pick it up via iTunes, Insound, or finer retail establishments.

  • Their MySpace page has a couple of live video clips available, as well as the requisite couple track streams from the EP, and a demo of the song "Citizens of Tomorrow".

  • Thanks to the collective bloggeist, I knew a bit about TPC before I saw them play, and I've been paying special attention to Chromewaves since Frank shares their hometown. He's caught them a few times since their EP arrived in Canada, first sharing shots and words from a show back in May, and he's been witness to their apparent growth as a live act over the past six months. Check out his brief review of their set at the Pop Montreal fest just a few days ago.

  • For tickets to Monday's show at the Middle East, head over to their box office between 1 and 7pm daily, or hit up Ticketmaster if you want to blow some money on 'convenience' charges.

  • The Cambridge stop is the first date in a six-week tour that takes them all over North America, so check out their shows page to see if they'll be near you.

  • the fine print... If anyone has an issue with this live set being made available, just say the word (email link on left). Recorded with a Sony ECM-719 mic and a Sony MZ-RH10 minidisc, converted to .wav and then edited to 192kbps mp3s. Mp3s are made available for a limited time, and are not reposted once removed.
