In case you didn't get the hint last week that Lisa Papineau is back for her semi-annual reunion with Los Angeles, we're here to resend the memo. As far as we're concerned, her move to Paris was one of the greatest losses of the decade and so these brief revisits must be savored. This of course meant being stagefront for Big Sir's first show in three years at The Airliner. Despite approaching the stage with a walking cane and looking as beautifully fragile as ever, Papineau completely immersed herself into the performance while delivering that well-known voice that critics years from now will be referencing others as Papineau-esque. The last Big Sir show for maybe quite awhile is 12/28 at the Detroit Bar and then she goes out on brief solo tour up the coast.
Lisa Papineau's new album NightMoves is our now on Lunatik Works and the new album from Big Sir Und Die Scheiße Ändert Sich Immer is out on GSL.
