Coachella & Anteros Music Video avatar

Hello everyone,
the guys are currently in Canada continuing their North American Tour, but will soon return to the US where they have a second weekend performance at Coachella Festival.
This year they are one of the headliners, and they already performed one show last saturday on the main Coachella stage:


You can watch their performances of Sun and Bad Decisions, and those of other artists on the official Youtube Channel:


While there, they also gave two interesting interviews about Gameshow and touring which you can check out here and here.

On the topic of touring I’d like to point out that two of their supporting bands recently released new records: Anteros published their EP Drunk; and Blaenavon released their LP That’s Your Lot, I really recommend that you guys go and check them out, I’m sure you won’t regret it!
Today Anteros also released the music video for their song Cherry Drop which was shot during TDCC’s UK Tour by Phoebe Fox. It’s really beautiful I urge you all to go check it out, you can even spot the guys sometimes ๐Ÿ˜‰

Talk soon,
Maybrit

Australia Tour & Updates
Australia Tour & Updates avatar

Hello everyone,
it’s been a busy time for the guys so I thought I’d make a little update post on everything that has happened lately.
A week ago Two Door finished touring in South America, including performances at events such as Lollapalooza Brasil, Argentina and Chile. They seem to have had lots of fun according to the many pictures that they have posted on social media.


Since their concert in Chile they have been enjoying a short break and will now restart their tour in the US, at the Fox Theater in California.

Last week they also announced that while they are in Australia for Splendour in the Grass they will do a mini Tour with three concerts in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney!

Starting today you can buy pre-sale tickets :

Another thing that happened last week was that their new single Lavender was the RadioX record of the week :


Before I finish I wanted to bring attention to a charity that the guys are supporting:


So if you can donate, please do so!
I hope you all have a nice day
Greetings,
Maybrit

Grosse Freiheit 36 / The End Of The European Tour
Grosse Freiheit 36   /   The End Of The European Tour avatar

Hello everyone,
I can’t believe that it has already been ONE week since the ending of the bands EU Tour. If you are a member of our Facebook Group or follow me on social media you might already know that I was lucky enough to go to their last tour concert in Hamburg (THANK YOU Mom & Dad).
Even before the concert started my day had already turned out amazing because Ben replied to me on Twitter about the concert, which ended up making me even more excited for the whole evening.


I went to the concert with my brother and my parents. We got to the venue around 20 minutes before the doors were supposed to open, and even though there was a queue we still managed to get into the front row on the left (Sam’s) side of the stage, right after spending all my dad’s money on merchandising of course. After just a few minutes of waiting the first support band started playing:
BlaenavonIMG_6331
Normally before a concert I like to check out the supporting bands but for this one I sadly did not which was a shame because Blaenavon were really great and I wish I would have known the lyrics to their songs to sing along. Their music reminded me of the Tourist History era and I enjoyed it a lot. I’m excited for their new LP. Check out one of my favourite songs of theirs, My Bark Is Your Bite, here:


Not long after they had finished and cleared the stage the second supporting band came on: Parcels
I have gone to lots of concerts before but I think tIMG_6409hat they are the most synchronized band I have ever seen (and also the band with the most impressive hair).
Their music was incredible, it has a funky, dance and electronic vibe much like Gameshow, and got everybody moving and dancing.
I enjoyed it a lot and have got their song Gamesofluck (and all their other songs to be honest) stuck in my head ever since; check it out here:


I really recommend you give both bands a listen, like Kevin said later on during the concert, when the guys look for support bands they always try to find bands that they believe in and that they think we will enjoy. So make sure to check them both out! You won’t regret it.

Once the stage was set up the excitment of seeing Two Door Cinema Club was rising. They started off with the classic Cigarettes in the Theater and then quickly transitioned into Undercover Martyn (#basementpeople). It was such a wonderful experience for me to see them from the front row. They were all so close and I could see and hear them much better than I ever had before. I was afraid at first that there would be troubles later on with people pushing to the front or mosh pits, like it had been the case in London, but I was positively surprised by how disciplined everything was. Everybody had a great time and the security did an amazing job at making sure that there was no trouble, and pulling the same guy out of the crowd three times because of crowd surfing.
The guys played 19 songs in total, mostly from Tourist History and Beacon, but also five songs of the new album, including their newest single Lavender, and the “classics” Gameshow, Are We Ready (Wreck), Ordinary and Bad Decisions. Hopefully starting festival season they will add some more new songs into the setlist so that we can get a chance to see those live as well. I’m sure this will get the crowds dancing.
After the show me and my mother both got very lucky. While she managed to catch Kevin’s base pick I caught one of Ben’s drumsticks.

I can’t wait to see the guys again in the future. I hope all of you have the chance to at least see them once.
They are playing lots of festivals this summer and have some upcoming concerts in South and North America, so make sure to take a look and see if they play anywhere near you.
I wish you all a lovely evening,
talk soon

Tales from a parisian basement
Tales from a parisian basement avatar

Basement people of the world hello!

As promised, I’m back with my very own tale from the basement. As you may know, I saw Two Door in Paris last Monday. It was a pretty big one for me, as it was my tenth time seeing them and my first proper Two Door gig (as in not a festival performance) in about three years. Finally, it was my first post Gameshow gig, so needless to say I was really looking forward to the whole thing.

The show was amazing, as usual. It was in the Casino de Paris, which I had never been to – what a wonderful place. The room itself was beautiful, and we were so so close to stage as there were no barriers.
The two first acts, Parcels and Blaenavon, were really good, I especially liked Parcels who really put us in the mood for what was to come. At last, Two Door arrived, and they were as fantastic as always. It was so nice to see them again, at their own show. They played Lavender, and anyone who follows this site on regular basis will know I have a bit of a thing with that song – boyband vibes much? Sadly, they did not have a dance routine prepared, it was still amazing though. At one point I actually thought it could be my new favourite Two Door song.. There’s just so many layers to it! The minute they started Something Good Can Work however I knew that no song could ever replace that one, it’s just too special and holds so many memories. Lavender may be second though, replacing Sleep Alone..ahhh decisions, and after all, why chose?!
I must say I was a bit disappointed by the set list, only five tracks off the new album including Are We Ready? (Wreck), Bad Decisions and Gameshow that they’ve been playing for months already. I understand that they want to keep playing some of the older songs, because they love them, because we love them and because they’re the songs that brought them their fans in the first place, but this is their new album tour, so I did hope we’d get to hear a bit more of it.. Even just Je Viens De Lร , as it was a french show. Oh well, I’m sure they have their reasons. I do hope they start playing more of the new album soon though, because I wasn’t the only one hoping for some more recent tracks.

After the show myself and a few fellow basement people waited for the band, that sadly didn’t appear. I can imagine how tired they must be after a show of course, but I was really hoping to meet them this time, as you guys probably know, as I mentioned this in my previous post. The whole experience was very overwhelming – it’s quite obvious they’ve moved on to be a bigger and greater band. I do hope to get talking to them soon though. A big thank you to all the people who tweeted the band/retweeted @Basement_people that night asking them to come out, you guys are the best.

Last but not least, I’d like to mention all the lovely people I met at the show: The passionate girl who had been waiting since 9 in the morning, the lovely girls who had come all the way from Russia to see the band, the kind people who kept me a spot up front as I was delayed going in, my good friend Emma who I’ve been online friends with for pretty much seven years but had never met until last week, my “real life” friends who were delighted to finally see the band I’ve been talking about for years, and pretty much everyone who made the night such a wonderful one. No matter how much I love live music, a lot of my favourite memories are the ones shared with fellow fans, outside the venue before or after a show, inside and up at the front checking our watches every minute, sharing our own stories.. So thank you to everyone who came and made that night what it was.

Here is a picture of Emma, her friend and myself. It was so nice to finally meet her after so long – though I must say it didn’t feel like we’d never met!

To finish this post, a short tale from the basement by one of the lovely people I met at the show. It was his seventeenth time seeing the band…his seventeenth time! I need to step up basement people.. 

I discovered them around summer 2010 and have been hooked seen then by the energy of their music and its evolution to this 3rd รกlbum after the โ€œbreakโ€. I hope they stick together giving us great music.

I finally get to see them live for the first time in Rouen (France) at the 106 in november 2012 and last Monday was my 17th gig. My highlights could be mostly by the venues and cities, New Orleans, Nashville, O2 London and Sonar Barcelona as they always deliver a great show. They simply make me happy and leave in a good mood; I hope to enjoy them many more years, next stop festival Cruilla in july, Barcelona.

I also started to colect รญtems like this:

Thank you to our secret basement person for this lovely story, thank you to the band for another fantastic performance, and thank you basement people for making every single Two Door experience unique!

Stay tuned for some news from Maybrit who was lucky enough to go the bands final European show, until then keep well!

Much love,
