MSTRKRFT officially kicked off their North American Tour on Sept. 26th at the Henry Fonda Theater in LA. Tour dates are posted on their myspace.
Luckily, I had the pleasure of going to their Fist Of God Tour last Tuesday night in Chicago. The show was epic, playing at the small but cozy Double Door Nightclub. Not only was I able to get incredibly close, but there was actually room to dance. JFK and AI-P constantly take swigs from a bottle of Crown Royal as the set progresses (they finished well over half in the 2 hour set.) I don't know whether Chicago has no love for electro or what, but I expected the venue to be way more full. Nonetheless, better for me.
MSTRKRFT spinnin' Easy Love @ Double Door
Here are some tracks to look for if you hit up their tour (which you really should.).
After the show, I stuck around and luckily got to meet Jesse F. Keeler (JFK), the mastermind behind the music of MSTRKRFT. He is actually a really cool dude. He told me he couldn't hear shit during the show, just what was in his headphones. Ridiculous set for those circumstances.
He also said that about half of their new album is in the set, which should drop sometime around the new year.
