CONTEST – Lykke Li @ The Phoenix – May 22, 2011
Roger DeckkerWho: Lykke Li
What: Swedish indie-dance-soul diva Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson has come a ways since closing one of our Hot Freaks stages at SxSW 2008 because, well, we couldn’t get anyone else. But we’ll call it prescience nonetheless.
Why: She released her second album, the darker, slinkier and all together better Wounded Rhymes at the start of March and having come through town at least three times – possibly more – in support of Youth Novels, you know more touring was inevitable.
When: Sunday, May 22, 2011
Where: The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto (all-ages)
Who else: Montreal’s Grimes will open things up.
How: Tickets for the show are sold out – she played the much larger Sound Academy last time through so no surprise there – but courtesy of Embrace, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away to the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to get some Lykke Li” in the subject line and your full name in the body and have that in to me before midnight, May 15.
What else: Having recovered from a bit of touring burnout, Lykke Li is back on the road with a new video to share.
