The Raveonettes on tour in Vancouver for their new album Observator. The Danish duo is just kicking off the North American leg of the tour (after dates in Portland and Seattle) before heading back to Europe.
Writing about the group’s last appearance at Venue, Jacqueline Ronson said: “The Raveonettes infected the audience with their perverted noise from the first drumbeat. Sune Rose Wagner looked ultra-confident with his borderline-androgynous style. Sharin Foo was a total bombshell blond with her long, stockinged legs and platinum bob. Together they commanded the stage like a master-and-mistress tag-team. The light show was nearly seizure-inducing. The volume was temporarily deafness-inducing. The performance combined the theatrics of a stadium show with the intimacy of a dive bar gig. In a word, it was perfect.”
