Sacha Sacket recently brought his all-girl band to a Los Angeles sex club to record a new live record, Sacha Sacket and the LadyKillers: Live at the Zone.” The full-length album marks the culmination of a year touring together and showcases a gritty reinvention of his previously introspective work. “For me, the location of a live record is paramount to the energy you aim to capture. There was this immediate intimacy with the live show and a strong amount of sexual tension. The songs became entirely different entities and it made sense to capture them in a place with few to zero boundaries.”

There is more to this than just a focus on the inherent sexuality of Sacket’s lyrics and performances. Because the HIV/AIDS epidemic started in places like The Zone (note: the club only permits safe practice and offers free testing), he decided to go full circle. A portion of profits from every CD are earmarked for ANSA’s “It Takes A Village” program that targets children in South Africa affected and orphaned by HIV/AIDS and with a bit of tongue and cheek, is packaged with one’s very own Sacha Sacket condom.
