I wasn't very impressed by Ladytron's live show. They sounded great, but it just wasn't very lively. Their opening act, Datarock, completely blew them away.
I must disagree, cocytus. I've seen Ladytron a few times now and they generally pick opening acts that are their polar opposite: Datarock and CSS are just two examples of white hot 'n zany party bands Ladytron have enlisted as support. Both bands were awesome and did the job of warming folks up for the icy cool of the 'tron, who are robots. And that's fine. It's a fun contrast. I don't want Ladytron to be lively. I want them to be stark, elegant, passionless, and detached. Like my cat.
Stark, elegant, passionless, and detached just seems pretentious to me. They're not bearing profound universal truth, just electronic dance music.Datarock warmed me up, but when they were followed by a robot show I was kinda disappointed.Just my opinion.
