LYKKE LI Played (le) Poisson Rouge

Lykke recently played the new Manhattan venue (le) Poisson Rouge, inspiring the small but crowded cabaret with her promising live presence. Commanding her way through tracks such as "Dance Dance Dance", "I'm Good, I'm Gone", "Little Bit", and "Breaking It Up", Lykke Li proved she is serious. Her music is the type that could be easily written off by music snobs as trite pop, but for real, she is a songstress, destined to be heard.

It has been pointed out that this would probably be the last time to see this talent in such a unique, tiny space. Did I mention it was also in the round? This just added to the special experience of this performance. Not to mention the fact that the setlist also included covers of Vampire Weekend and A Tribe Called Quest.
