Norway’s indie rock treasure, Sondre Lerche, is playing The Troubadour this Saturday, September 22. Even though I could very well tell you from first hand experience seeing Sondre Lerche perform at The Troubadour, that he’s a master at captivating an audience from show start to finish regardless if he’s solo or with full backing band. Even though I could tell you that he exudes so much hypnotic charisma that he had people singing along to brand new unreleased songs that they didn’t know the words to. Even though I could probably convince you on my own of the ecstasy that will be had this coming Saturday at The Troubadour, I wont (yeah I’m a filthy liar, but he’s just so good that I couldn’t help myself). Sondre has just released (on Sep 4th) one of the most energetic live albums I’ve heard to date. “Bootlegs,” was recorded in Lerche’s hometown of Bergen, and boy is it apparent that this was a homecoming show. It perfectly captures the mood and intensity of a Sondre Lerche performance. So if you’re on the fence about this show, give it a listen, you’ll be purchasing by the end of the first track. Supporting will be Fancy Colors.
Tickets are $20 (not including any fees), doors open at 8 p.m. and the event is all ages. Enter the contest below for a chance to win a pair of tickets, courtesy of our friends at The Troubadour.
