Ladytron up the AV with stellar performance at Fonda Theatre Hollywood

It’s crazy how much can change in 2-3 years. Since becoming pregnant in 2016, and now a first-time mama with a 19-month old toddler — a lot has changed for me.  Last night’s Ladytron show at the Fonda Theatre proved to me that although time passes, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been ‘out of the […]
