Norwegian electro funk/dance punk/new new wave band Datarock kicks off their U.S. tour tonite at the Santo's Party House in New York City. The rest of the tour will mostly take them along the West Coast before ending up in Austin, Texas on March 17.

The band has just released their latest video Catcher in the Rye which captures them live on stage.

Favorite jams by these computer geeks ("data" means computer in Norwegian) are Computer Camp Love, which comes with a cool video, as well as the Talking Heads inspired tune Fa Fa Fa.
