Today I discovered that the London based band White Lies is coming to Minneapolis on February 8 at the Cedar Cultural Center. Not sure when tickets goes on sale but here is the link for the http://www.thecedar.org/event/whitelies . Of course I had to listen to their latest album Friends today. It has been awhile since I first listened to it so I kind of almost forgot how good the album is and reminded me that I need to listen to it more often. For fans of The Rope, I honestly think you will dig White Lies although they are more synth driven than The Rope. The music is undeniably catchy. Go listen to Friends. It definitely is one of the best releases I have heard this year.
