Two Door Cinema Club and We Have Band are worth seeing.
So I can see what snazzy dressers they are? Sorry, generic "indie" music bores me nowadays. Good point about N.E.R.D. & Vitalic though.

There's a big difference between TDCC and something like Coldplay or the Kooks. There's electronica and afro-pop in there. Yes, they're snappy dressers, but that's part of the deal if you sign to Kitsuné. Not sure how they'd come across on a festival stage though.

. . . who stole it from someone else in Africa . . . etc etc blah blah blah

You think there's a chance of completely ahistoric music with no antecedents? And that bands shouldn't use some of the same sounds and influences? TTCM fall some way in between Vampire Weekend and Foals, but have their own sound. Vampire Weekend are more preppy/New England. Foals miss out the Afro-pop, but have some of the same kind of indie-dance and free range guitar.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Not sure if it's already pegged in here, but The Eels are playing in Winterthur on August 28th, supported by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Tix are 54 CHF from Starticket.

Also the night before, Paolo Nutini is playing the same spot.

Looks like an open air music week in old town Winterthur, should be cool. (Events already created for both in the Concerts calendar)

When you figure that out please explain to me their fascination with Amy Macdonald.

It's just Eels btw, no "the"
