Lykke Li live in Vancouver at Richards on Richards
written by Hugo Lunny - November 9th, 2008
When an artist travels across the globe, with a level of hype only given to a small handful of artists each year, the average concert goer's anticipation is high. After many YouTube videos, and television live performances, Lykke Li had set expectations a lot greater than many of her fans thought could be met. On October 28th at Richards on Richards in Vancouver, BC, she lived up to all the talk and excitement that those videos and TV segments had created.
Performing for about an hour, the Swedish born singer showed nothing but enthusiasm and energy as she energetically plowed through each of her songs from her debut album, "Youth Novels." Surprisingly more than three quarters of the sold out crowd sung along word for word, and the encore which Lykke Li's band provided of A Tribe Called Quest's "Can I Kick It?" didn't go down too badly either.
Put simply, her show was a bargain for what we were given.
