4/28: Little Boots & Dragonette @ the Mid East
With a nod over at Hotline, because, well, hot damn! (And yes, that's me and Martina Dragonette on the right, ahem, taken after my DJ set at their GS show a few months ago): Perhaps the hottest dance show of the year hits the Middle East on April 28 when Canadian electro-pop group Dragonette teams with UK dance siren Little Boots.
That is correct: Dragonette’s devilishly sultry front woman Martina Sorbata and Little Boots, a.k.a. Victoria Christina Hesketh, on the same stage on the same night in Cambridge’s Central Square. Sweet mother of Mary, Hotline needs a cocktail.
Now if anyone can give Dragonette’s epic gazillion-light stage show a run for its electro-diva money, it’s Hesketh, who before destroying dance floors around the globe with mainstream-pushing hits like “Remedy” and “New In Town” supplied the vocal-purr for all-female synth-punk dancers Dead Disco.
Sure, this show is still several months away, but it’s never too early to get acquainted. And ticket on-sale info will be posted when it becomes available, because this one might be tough to get into day-of-show. In the meantime:
