Grimes, the Canadian one-woman electro-pop group fronted by Claire Boucher, opened for Austra last week at the Crocodile Café. The band/Grimes/she/Claire/they will be back in town at the Sunset Tavern on 2/20/12.
The Canadian electro-pop-goth band Austra played at the Crocodile Café in support of their latest album, Feel It Break. Fronted by Katie Stelmanis – whose middle name is Austra – twins Sari and Romy Lightman added some amazing harmonies.
The British indie pop girl group, The Pipettes, played at the Croc last night (5/1) in support of their latest release, Earth vs. The Pipettes. Sisters Gwenno and Ani Saunders were backed by an all-male band, The Cassettes. Their last Seattle visit in November, 2007 was also at the Croc (version 1.0 at the time).
As mentioned in yesterday’s post, Greg Laswell and Lenka are co-headlining on their current tour together. At Monday’s show at the Crocodile Cafe, Greg was up first and was accompanied by Austin Hartley-Leonard on cello and guitar.
Lenka was second up at The Croc on Monday night at a stop during her co-headline tour with Greg Laswell. I was able to grab an advance copy of her upcoming album Two – before they sold out – due to be released on April 19.
