Last week I saw Lykke Li at the Roundhouse in Camden. It was the first time I’ve seen a show at this venue and the first time I went to a concert solo! It was much less intimidating than I had anticipated. Probably because I noticed that a few others around me had come alone as well. No one wanted to see her and I didn’t want to miss out.
The venue has a great set up and as the name effectively describes, it is round giving an excellent view of the stage no matter where you are standing. Lykke was great and has an amazing energy when she performs live. If you aren’t familiar with her music get on it already, she’s very talented.
While the concert itself was great I was puzzled by the lack of audience participation. I thought people were supposed to dance at concerts? She sang a few slow songs but it was almost painful to see how uninterested some people appeared to be even during the faster tracks. I’m thinking some maybe didn’t know who she was and bought tickets because they were cheap to give her a chance. I don’t know, and I wasn’t the only to notice this. Other concert goers commented on her Facebook page apologising for the audience. It didn’t faze me though and I danced up a storm. Check her out below:
