Laetitia's US tour starts today!

The Ensemble will be there for a whole month and she's going to most places so no excuses, 'merkins! Go - you won't be disappointed.

Got my tickets for Minneapolis! I quite like the venue she's playing - crusty and small. Saw her play the same one with Monade for the A Few Steps More tour.

I caught her show last night. She sounded lovely.

Seattle. At the Sunset Tavern. It's a pretty small venue, and was comfortably filled by an audience of... I'd guess 50 or so? Laetitia noted that the place felt 'pretty trippy' while confessing that she'd eaten some chocolate before the show that 'perhaps had something in it.'

Anyhow, I was stone sober and quite impressed by her band. The other three members all sang and there were plenty of harmonies. As the show went on, they locked into a solid groove and Laetitia's voice sounded better and better, possibly the best performance I've ever heard from her.

never really understood why bands keep booking shows there, so I get why not more people showed up. I mean I love Ballard, but it's an absolute pain to get to if you don't have a car. I confess skipping shows of bands I liked who were playing there, as I couldn't be bothered all the commute (but then I was a little spoiled when I lived in Seattle, living a block from Chop Suey and less than 5 minute walk from Neumos)

Apparently we used to be neighbors! I live just a few blocks from Chop Suey, but over the hill in the CD. I hardly go there anymore because the new ownership doesn't book many bands that I like - a shame, since it's by far the best-sounding venue that I know of around here.

I've seen some great shows at the Sunset, though it is a trek. I hadn't been there in a while, and it's been remodeled with door now between the bar and the performance space in the back... I've got mixed feelings about it.

haha! no way! I was on 14th and Union (across the street from Skillet) for the 3 years I lived in Seattle, until 2 years ago when I moved to London

but, yeah - I agree with Chop Suey, there were never any good bands playing there when I lived there, I only went when friends' bands were performing. I got super jealous when I figured out that Broadcast had played there in 2005 on the TB tour, would've been a great place to see them.

Whoa! The location of the psycho hatchet murder - that was pretty messed up. I'm over on Pine St, a block up from Centeal Cinema.

I did catch that Broadcast show. It was maybe a week after I moved to Seattle. Only time I ever saw them, and definitely one of my all-time favorites.
