Athens, Ga. four-piece Twin Tigers, on tour in support of their latest album, will play The Space this weekend. Death Wish, the band's new full-length, was released on April 9. Twin Tigers, who channel canonical post-punk influences into a novel musical approach, have drawn praise from the likes of Spin and NPR, and Death Wish's studio recording was reportedly bankrolled by big brothers/Joy Division-indebted comrades Interpol. Twin Tigers have a reputation for powerful live performances, so this date at The Space isn't one to sleep on.
