Two Door Cinema Club at The Studio at Webster Hall [9/14/11]

One night before their sold out concert at Terminal 5, Two Door Cinema Club stopped by The Studio at Webster Hall to play a packed club show on September 14. The trio from Bangor, Ireland proved their versatility by showcasing their ability to go from headlining a major festival (Glastonberry) to wowing an East Village club.

The concert was simulcast on MTV’s The Hive, proving MTV actually cares about music again.

TDCC played selections from their March 2010 album Tourist History (Glassnote Records, coincidentally the same label that recently signed our new favorite band Oberhofer). They ripped through their set last night for a high energy show filled with infectious grooves and driving beats. The tightly packed club (and everyone watching at home) bopped and danced along to every song from start to finish; from the the opening jingle of “Cigarettes in The Theater” as the band hit the stage until the final notes of “I Can Talk” as they left the crowd in a sweaty mess. They closed their first set with a rousing sing-along of their smash hit “What You Know”, allowing the audience to sing the chorus before kicking into the opening chords.

When all was said and done, the band was seen humbly schlepping their backpacks, equipment and dry cleaning before heading down Second Avenue to haul a taxi to their afterparty at Yotel.
