Ladytron + VHS or Beta + Sonoio

The key to English synth-pop quartet Ladytron’s endurance is its marriage of futuristic sonics to old-fashioned tunecraft: Although new album Gravity the Seducer bogs down with too many half-baked instrumentals, moody gems like “Mirage” and “White Elephant” shimmer with a bit of what’s kept Duran Duran and Depeche Mode in business all this time. Tonight Ladytron shares a bill with Kentucky dance-punkers VHS or Beta.
