Two Door Cinema Club at Alexandra Palace.

This was a very enjoyable gig. Alexandra Palace has the benefit of being my local music venue. I managed to meet  a new member of my gig club at the Palace relatively early so we got a good spot, and were later joined by another mate of mine so at least we got three of our intended foursome. Poor To missed out again.

Opening act were Sundara Karma. No, meant nothing to me either. Somewhat retro act swishing their 1970s long hair. I will stick to Temples.

Next up was a band I had heard of, Circa Waves. They were much more accomplished and the young (very young) audience were singing along to them, so they have a proper fan base. Lead singer just so much more confident than the opening act. Looked like a proper band who are there, not just up and coming.

And finally Two Door. This was a consummate set, mixing tracks from all three albums. Indeed they opened with three from their first and that felt more like they had done their encore at the beginning. so much verve and gusto was displayed, with fine strong songs.

This definitely one of the best indie bands around now, and a vibrant act to see live. They went down a storm at sold out Alexandra Palace.
