Lykke Li – Vogue Theatre – May 27, 2011
In a storm of lights and smoke, Swedish indie pop sensation Lykke Li entered the darkly draped Vogue Theatre stage with a great flourish. Wearing a high cut Japanese-esque overdress allowing glimpses of a bodysuit, she was the epitmany of sexy and stylish.
Sulty and quirky at the same time, Lykke Li draws you in with her bold personality and infectious pop sounds.
The sell out crowd was hanging on her every word (even though some lyrics are hard to decifer above the music and cheers) as she played her way through the 80 minute set. The crowd could easily have danced along for hours longer. Let’s hope that next time Lykke Li returns to Vancouver she plays a much larger venue, judging by how early this show sold out, there are probably a lot of people who missed out on seeing her. She is definitely not to be missed!
