The Ting Tings add nine stops to nearly sold-out tour
Once upon a time, popular music was popular for a reason. The musicians were talented, the hooks were infectious, and the sound just made people happy.
The Ting Tings want to make you happy again.
Their ever-expanding tour schedule (and MTV appearance) is only proof that a revolution is afoot. Of the group's 10 original North American tour stops, eight sold out. So what's an up-and-coming electro-dance-pop-punk (elecdapounk?) duo to do? Add nine more shows, of course.
As vocalist Katie White told Paste writer Tom Lanham, "we were just writing songs to make us feel good." Actually, Katie, they make everyone feel good.
Commence the good feelings at the following dates:
22 - Washington, D.C. @ 9:30 Club
25 - Providence, R.I. @ Club Hell
26 - Albany, N.Y. @ Valentine's
27 - Brooklyn, N.Y. @ McCarren Park Pool (with MGMT and Black Moth Super Rainbow)
30 - Kansas City, Mo. @ City Market (with Gnarls Barkley and Black Lips)
31 - St. Louis, Mo. @ The Bluebird
