Club NME - PLAYED ON: Friday 18 February 2011

Neon Trees & Transfer

Gig info

Described by Rolling Stone as being "filled with 80s pop meshed with bombastic alt-rock choruses, like the Killers playing backup for Duran Duran", it's hard not to love Neon Trees. The Utah four-piece have spent the last 3 years touring with The Killers and 30 Seconds To Mars to name but a few and this summer, the band played to a packed out crowd at Lollapalooza. With the US marching to the sound of Neon Trees, they're heading to the UK to make us do the same.

San Diego's Transfer have a list of influences it's kinda hard to argue with: Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones. A mix of equal parts modern rock and 60's psychedelia, Transfer bring us a perfect balance of the grandeur of British rock and the gritty allure of the American West. Their debut album 'Future Selves' was release in 2009 and gained them legions of fans in the US. We reckon this Club NME show'll get them a few more.

Tickets for this event are available from the venue box office, and can be purchased at face value if payment is made in cash.
