Ticket Giveaway - Laetitia Sadier - Thunderbird Cafe - 9.26.12 - Show Preview - Concert Preview

Laetitia Sadier will be making an appearance next Wednesday, 9.26 at the Thunderbird Cafe. The former Stereolab member released her first solo album two years ago (The Trip) and just released her followup LP entitled Silencio in July via Drag City Records. On the new album, the French songstress plays meditative acoustic guitar with flute solos with much texture in between. Lyrically the album screams of controversial topics such as the economy and the political landscape today. Her socialist leanings are evident on the LP, questioning and showing her mistrust of our environment, that it comes off more as a political album. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show. As usual just email us your name at

From her press: 

Silencio! It's been two years since we took The Trip with Laetita Sadier. Her first true solo album since exiting the bedrooms of Monade and Stereolab, The Trip breathed freshly and deeply as both a personal homage to life's journey and as a grieving process for the separations that are unavoidable within it. Born from a similar, natural need for stillness as well as agitation, Laetitia now delivers her follow-up LP,Silencio - an album exploring the individual connection to a deeper self, placed in a broader environment, in a similarly fresh kind of way. Silencio! That noise preventing your connectivity comes from society - the noise of commercialism and the marketplace overwhelming your ability to cut deeply inward, prohibiting your inner-connections. Silencio may help you understand how to resist the rules of these systems, but only if you listen!

Within Silencio's dynamic song structures, the album features some exciting collaboration: there's a new jammer with former Stereolabber, Tim Gane; and musical drifter-man James Elkington provides writing for two tracks in addition to recording and playing on much of the record. Need some other freaky names? OK! Sam Prekop shows up mysteriously. But that's a story for another time. Guests aside, we're more concerned with the singularity of Laetitia Sadier. That voice, the one that reaches you and wraps you up each time you hear it. Calm, direct. Cool and hot. If you're unable to attain an inner connection with yourself, Laetitia will connect to it for you. Silencio is your human modem.

Show begins at 9p with tickets only $10. They can be found here. More information about Laetitia Sadier can be found here:
