I’m going to make a proposition to all you young professionals out there: There’s more than one way to unwind after a long day at work. Sure, the bottle of wine is a good standby, but once in a while you should try live music—especially the sort that’s all about having a good time.
If you’re up for the challenge, my recommendation for this month is checking out the Tokyo Police Club at Bluebird on April 21. (For those of you up in the mountains, they’ll also be playing Belly Up Aspen on April 22.) The Canadian indie-rock band is just off the heels of their fourth studio album and their latest single “Hot Tonight” is sure to get you on your feet and dancing.
If anything, Forcefield, the band’s most recent album, is lighter and more carefree than earlier works. Just because you get older, doesn’t mean you have to stop having fun. Case in point: The band has an interactive Super Mario-esque game on their website that you can play while listening to the album. See, now there really is no reason to not know all of the words by Monday.
Make sure to get to the show early. On the US leg of the tour, TPC will be supported by San Francisco indie rockers Geographer and the Canadian quintet Said the Whale.
Tickets are $20 ($25 at the door), and you can purchase them online. http://www.bluebirdtheater.net/events/detail/247756
