Among the awesomest things Canada has produced are our own Alexandra, Janna, and Tara (the latter whom we’ve loaned to Paris for the nonce) and, yes, Tokyo Police Club. I admit I’m a sucker for edgy pop music in the vein of The Strokes, but seriously, what’s not to like here? Tokyo Police Club‘s music is relentlessly catchy sing-in-the-car-on-the-way-to-work stuff played by adorable boys all of whom are under 25. I like ’em. And apparently, you do too because Thursday’s show with Freelance Whales and Arkells at the El Rey is sold out. Fear not, though because we can hook you up. Oh yes, I’ve got a pair for some lucky (randomly selected) Blogging LA reader. Just leave a comment below beseaching me and I’ll pick one of y’all randomly because you know it’s been too long since you’ve been to a show chock-a-block full of scruffy tattooed boys in skinny jeans.

Just look at these guys. How Canadian! How cute!

OMG Win Tix to Tokyo Police Club


Oh jeez. I almost dread posting this because of the deluge of entries I’m pretty sure I’ll get for this fffffffsssshhhhhttttttttt! [the sound you make when you lick your finger & touch something burning) show; seems everyone’s been mobbing their shows at local museums recently (Natural History Museum, the Hammer & Indie’s “Also I Like to Rock” series). So I’m cowering and covering my eyes as I hesitantly poke “send” on this post…

To win tickets, pore through some of TPC’s lyrics with their dystopic themes and imagery of natural decay, visceral change and social criticism (plus some love-gone-wrong songs thrown in for good measure). Tell me which you like the best and why.

Their show is on Thursday the 18th at the Fonda; the Whigs open for them.
