Brooklyn’s Tigercity take to the road this spring, having played multiple shows during the fall and SXSW. The band has booked 33 dates with VHS or Beta, beginning on April 1 in Ann Arbor, MI, and ending May 10 in Chicago, IL.

Tigercity’s highly danceable pop is a blend of The Cars, Roxy Music and modern indie rock. Last year, they self-released their EP “Pretend Not To Love,” which was recognized as an iTunes “Indie Spotlight”. The band was also recently selected as one of the bands for Volume One of the “Shout It Out Loud” music compilation, which features a wide array of promising new artists such as Cut Off Your Hands and Georgie James as well as established acts like MSTRKFT and Rhett Miller.

The band toured heavily in 2007, and have shared the stage with acts including but not limited to M.I.A., Junior Boys, The Rosebuds, Jamie Lidel and David Cross.
