Something Good Can Work

Tourist HistoryImage via Wikipedia
Two Door Cinema Club are an electropop/indie rock band from Bangor and Donaghadee, Northern Ireland formed in 2007. They have released a contender for album of the year with 'Tourist History' and we were excited to be able to see them perform at New Slang, Kingston. The night was originally organised as part of a series of events to mark the 20th birthday of my partner's sister. Unfortunately she hasn't been too well recently, and she decided that she wouldn't be attending which meant that we had spare tickets available. A friend expressed interest immediately and after meeting my partner from work, we travelled with him towards Kingston. On arrival I managed to sell the remaining ticket to the first person we encountered. I felt like characters from the Jungle Book; Kaa with the persuasion but I felt inflated like Baloo from the amount of alcohol I had consumed. The Hippodrome was packed with eager fans and after queuing for ages to be served at the bar we made our way to the front. Two Door Cinema Club were on stage almost immediately and they got the place rocking. I enjoyed their set although our experience was cut short because we shared a toilet to save on time. Won't be making that mistake again! The journey home as expected took ages but Angry Birds provided entertainment. I still can't believe that the creators are considering a movie version?!
