LADYTRON

Ages 21 and up Doors : 7:30pm Show : 8:30pm

When they first appeared in the early 2000s, Ladytron combined the fundamentals of classic synth pop — crystalline melodies enveloped in icy textures and rippling arpeggios — with touches of indie pop, shoegaze, disco, and industrial music, and conjured distinctly different moods on each album, spanning the hook-laden simplicity of 2001’s 604 to the darker feel of 2005’s landmark Witching Hour to 2011’s meditative Gravity the Seducer. They bridged the gap between synth pop’s original ’80s heyday and its renaissance in the 2010s. Following their critically acclaimed debut 604, their Los Angeles recorded follow up, Light & Magic, a darker, more streamlined set of songs including the single Seventeen was released in 2002. It reached number seven on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
