Northern Ireland’s Two Door Cinema Club had the all the makings of a one-hit wonder when their infectious 2012 single, “What You Know,” invaded every dance club in the U.S. But the millennial indie-rockers proved their staying power with their third and latest album, June’s Gameshow. Of course, folks in the U.K. have known as much since the effervescent six-piece emerged six years ago. Gameshow, however, shows Two Door Cinema Club’s maturation into a veritable hit factory. Look no further than opener “Are We Ready? (Wreck),” a cheeky shuffle propped up by tight guitars and irresistible gang vocals. The band cites two recently departed legends — David Bowie and Prince, the latter of whom is totally from here — as key influences on the album, which was produced by Irish super-producer Jacknife Lee (Taylor Swift, U2, Weezer). Opening is Kiwi electropop duo BROODS, who headlined First Avenue in August. All ages.
