Live Review: Le Tigre – Paramount Theatre – Seattle, Washington 06.07.2023

The audience at the historic Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington was electric with anticipation waiting to see Le Tigre perform live this past Thursday. On tour for the first time in almost 20 years, the electronic sounds of Le Tigre were bumping through the walls of the Paramount and had the crowd moving, dancing and jumping around all night.

Guitarist/Vocalist of Kathleen Hanna jokingly mentioned that the last time Le Tigre had performed at the Paramount Theatre, they didn’t event turn on the lights for them. Saying, this time they brought their own lights. The stage was beautifully lit with pink and blue lights through out the evening and a large screen with projected animations and video displayed behind the group. The crowd was happily invited to sing along with every world as the large screen had the lyrics of the songs flashing up behind them. The vibes of the audience were only positive through out as Le Tigre played hit after hit through the night like TKO, Hot Topic, Viz and others.

The night moved quickly, with minimal pauses in the music to tell some stories and a short intermission to allow the group to do a quick outfit change. Coming back out to the stage in matching black and white outfits, Le Tigre did some fun choreographed dances along with the remaining songs of their set. As the night winded down Kathleen informed the audience that the next song (Keep on Livin’) would be the last for the night. The audience cheered for an encore as the band walked off stage. Le Tigre quickly came back out on stage for two more songs with the final being one of their best known tracks Deceptacon. With the last line of the song “See You Later” closing out the night, us in attendance are hoping that the next time Seattle see’s Le Tigre will be much sooner rather than later.

Le Tigre is currently on tour through North America, with the tour wrapping up the end of July with three sold out shows at Brooklyn Steel in New York City. Most of the remaining shows are sold out, with tickets available on certain dates, full ticket availability is available on Le Tigre’s website.
