For the better part of the last year, Orange County - based The Colourist have cut their teeth on the indie-pop circuit. But unlike other budding outfits, the quartet learned the ropes by opening midsized theaters for the likes of Metric, Panic! at the Disco, Atlas Genius and the Naked and Famous, plus an appearance at last year's Coachella. Such esteemed gigs came on the strength of their four-song EP Lido, which featured a mini alt-rock hit in "Little Games." What better way to kick off their own six-week tour than with a headlining show at the Troub, a venue from which the band have seen many of their own favorite acts blow up? With their self-titled debut LP slated for release later this month via Republic Records, The Colourist are setting themselves up for a busy 2014.
