The Georgia Straight presents the Raveonettes at Venue
Live Nation has announced that Danish indie-rock duo the Raveonettes will be performing at Venue—with guests Melody’s Echo Chamber—on Sunday, September 23, in support of its latest studio album Raven in the Grave.
The duo—consisting of Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo—has been making records consistently since the release of its 2002 debut EP Whip It On.
With Raven in the Grave, the Raveonettes has taken a slight departure from its distinctive combination of retro surf-rock, driving beats, and dark lyrics: “This is the first Raveonettes album we've done which doesn't feature the signature Raveonettes surf drumbeat," says Wagner. "None of the tunes have any real sunshine to them. It’s all very un-Rave." Adds Foo: "It has a mood of ethereal defiance. It’s the perfect winter soundtrack just in time for spring."
Tickets for the show are priced at $20 (plus service charges and fees) and go on sale this Friday (June 8) at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.
Tickets are also available for purchase at Red Cat Records and through Rogers Wireless Box Office.twitter.com/vanhappenings.
