The other day, England’s electronic 4-some Ladytron came to New York to play a show. I was lucky enough to meet the band. Everyone in Ladytron is so cool. There were several die hard Ladytron fans with me who had a very nice collection of rare singles and collectible items and the band graciously signed them. Mira and Reuben were actually so impressed with some of the items, they actually took photos of us posing with our Ladytron collections. I hope that photo ends up somewhere! Thanks again Ladytron! It was great to meet you! Hope to see you again very soon!

Ladytron! My first time seeing the British synthpop band was on October 8, 2011 at New York’s Terminal 5. VHS or Beta opened the show and got the crowd ready to dance. Ladytron took the stage around 9:30 and in additon to a great performance, there was a great light show. Ladytron has 2 females and 2 males. Helen Marnie sings most lead vocals and Mira Aroyo also sings lead on a few songs. The 2 guys Reuben Wu and Daniel Hunt play keyboards. Together, they make some pretty delicious dance grooves.
The nearly 2 hour set featured Ladytron hits such as “Seventeen,” “Discotraxx,” “Soft Power,” “Destroy Everything You Touch” (which was the final song of the night) and “Runaway.” Tracks from their new album “Gravity the Seducer” including “White Gold,” “Ace of Hz,” and “White Elephant” were played. The reception to the newer material was just as good as it was for the classic songs and it was a very fun show.
You can see the setlist (though it’s not that great of a photo) after the jump.
