I’ll be perfectly honest, I’ve never heard of Tokyo Police Club. Blame it on the style of music I have on SoundCloud, or Spotify or basically any outlet that I use to listen to music. When I heard the band was at Trees in Dallas, I couldn’t resist and boy was I glad that I attended.

Prism Tats opened the night with his blend of rock beats, guitar accents and electronic elements transforming Trees into a psychedelic forest. With his self-titled LP being released in April, Garett van der Spek set the mood for the entire night.
If you thought Tokyo Police Club was the weirdest name on the lineup, you’d be mistaken as We Were Promised Jetpacks takes the cake. Don’t let the name fool you though, the four piece know how to play and better yet perform. The Scottish band has been around for a bit and it showed as the entire crowd rocked along to their tracks. The soaring vocals of Adam Thompson infected every attendee setting the stage for Tokyo Police Club.
A decade after their debut EP, the Toronto four-piece set Trees alight as the band kept the crowd dancing and singing throughout their entire set. The smooth bass, head-bobbing drums and harmonizing vocals rocked the night and had me wanting more and more. The band released their latest EP Melon Collie and the Infinite Redness Pt. 1 recently, a good starter for someone who hasn’t heard of them yet.
