The Raveonettes sell out LA’s El Rey Theatre

The Danish duo highlight new material

The Raveonettes highlighted new material during their sold-out show at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles last night (March 4).

Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner took the stage along with drummer Leah Shapiro to loud cheers from an adoring crowd.

Bathed in multi-coloured spotlights, they launched into ‘Hallucinations’ from their new album ‘Lust Lust Lust’ and ran through several new tracks including ‘Dead Sound’ and ‘Aly, Walk With Me’.


“We have a new album that just came out a few weeks ago,” Foo told the audience. “Now we’re gonna kill the good mood by playing ‘Expelled From Love’.

Nearly an hour into their 80-minute set, Foo said, “Now it’s time to play some old music,” as they segued into ‘Attack Of The Ghost Riders’ and the crowd went wild.

The Raveonettes played:


‘Dead Sound’

‘That Great Love Sound’


‘Let’s Rave On’


‘Red Tan’

‘Love In A Trashcan’

‘Expelled From Love’

‘Attack of the Ghost Riders’

‘You Want The Candy’

‘Black Satin’


‘French Disko’

‘Aly, Walk With Me’

The band will continue their US tour with shows tonight (March 5) at San Francisco’s Independent, Friday (March 7) at Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge, and next week at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival.
