French singer Lætitia Sadier (from Stereolab) is back in town, this time billed as the Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble. Her latest record Find Me Finding You is available now on Drag Records.
We previously caught Sadier in 2012 and noted, “Lætitia Sadier came to the 400 Bar in Minneapolis, last night, in support of her latest album, Silencio, out now via Drag City. For those not familiar with Sadier, she is, or rather was, the main singer of Stereolab, a band from London. The band was mostly known for loungey keyboard pop sound with Sadier's distinctive French accent (either sung in French or English).”
Nicholas Krgovich (who we previously mentioned that he also goes by Chris Mastheim in 2014) and DJ Jake Rudh (from Transmission) to open.

The legendary, politically-conscious Australian band Midnight Oil will be making a rare appearance in Minneapolis on Tuesday (over 15 years!). The time has come, a fact's a fact!
If you’re wondering about the long gap in touring, the band broke up in 2002 when vocalist Peter Garrett decided to focus on a solo career.
The Oils reformed in 2009 for a few one-off gigs, but only as of February 2017, did they decide to embark on “The Great Circle 2017” tour. All initial U.S. dates were immediately sold out. Luckily, the band decided to add a few more dates before they call it a day. The iconic group’s last stop on the 2017 tour will be at First Avenue.
To celebrate their return, the group is releasing a new box set to coincide with the tour. The Vinyl Collection will contain all their studio LPs and EPs, plus CDs and music videos.
Melbourne’s The Living End will open.
