If you're tired of laptop-based hipster DJ's being billed as "the biggest dance party of the year," (ahem! Girltalk), then prepare yourself for the real thing as Cut Copy takes over the Showbox for some guaranteed roof-raising. After putting in their requisite time as openers for uber-acts such as Bloc Party and Daft Punk, the Australian trio embarks on their first headlining tour across the States with a set-list incorporating their sparse, enigmatic early sounds as well as the synth-loving sex appeal of their recent release, In Ghost Colours. Known for live shows that combine their love of high-energy dance beats as well as visually stunning graphic design, Cut Copy will satisfy any lingering desires from the last time you went out to go dancing and came home less than sated. Get ready to get sweaty! All ages.
