Tokyo Police Club @ Mad Hatter – 3/3

Tokyo Police Club are coming to the Mad Hatter tonight & surprisingly, it doesn’t appear to be sold out yet. Honestly, I think I might be more inclined to go for the opening band Harlem Shakes, who after giving their MySpace page a listen, I can say without hesitation that they sound incredibly fun.  Named after a dance, these kids know how to move bodies.  The Village Voice listed them as one of the best New York bands of 2007, calling them “Lethally charming and poised for certain success” and I’m kicking myself for not knowing them long ago as it’s exactly the type of music I love…poppy with a little electro beats behind the the John Darnielle-ish vocals.  Ruby Coast is another fun canadian pop band, but his voice might get on your nerves a few songs in.  $15 might be a touch steep for the show…but it’s two really strong acts and a third worth seeing.
