Hot Tonight: Canada’s Tokyo Police Club Brings Its Party To The USA

Opening alone in the crowd with an acoustic “Ready To Win,” Tokyo Police Club’s David Monks stirred a sold-out Boot & Saddle into a frenzy that never stopped. Playing a tight set of 18 songs, the Canadian rockers induced sweat, smiles and deep-catalog requests. Touring behind last year’s sublime TPC (Dine Alone), the quartet showed why it’s one of the best bands around. Fellow Ontarians Dizzy opened the Philly date with a stunning set as well, playing material from debut LP Baby Teeth (Royal Mountain), which just won the Juno Award for alternative album of the year.
