Published Jun 02, 2008Lustful Danes the Raveonettes have announced their summer tour dates, but more importantly a sister swap. The bands blond half, Sharin Foo, will hold down the fort in L.A. while her sister Louise joins the duos Sune Rose Wagner on stage, effectively switching up 50 percent of the bands line-up.
According to the group, Sharin plans to sit this tour out to take care of her little bun in the oven. She also plans to get a creative leg up on Wagner and start working on the bands follow-up to the Jesus and Mary Chain-worshipping Lust Lust Lust.
As for sister Louise, she is no stranger to the arts. She is a founding member of the collective Ohmarymary, which directed the Raveonettes video "Aly Walk With Me, and is also deeply involved in the Copenhagen music scene (or so the press release tells us).
Giving this story a strange little twist, Sharins MySpace page lists her real name as Louise Sharin Fosberg (Foo). Make what you will of that little piece of cryptic MySpace trickery.
