Ladytron and Simian
"The first great electro pop record of the new millennium."--Muzik magazine on Ladytron
Ultrastylish Liverpool electro sensations Ladytron make their Columbus debut at the Wexner Center in a double-bill that also features up-and-coming band Simian.
With a jet-set new wave sound that updates The Human League and Kraftwerk for the 21st century, Ladytron's latest release Light and Magic picks up where their scintillating debut 604 left off. Their soaring synths, robot rhythms, dreamy vocals, and sly minimalist lyrics should make this a show not to be missed.
Also on the bill are London-based quartet Simian, who bring the psychedelia-suffused electro sounds that propel We Are Your Friends, their recent release for Astralwerks/Source.
Please note: Outhud, the previously announced opening act, has withdrawn from this tour as of February 24. Simian will be on stage at 9 pm.
