I read somewhere on the vast internet that someone stole one of my wedding ideas. They had Jens Lekman play at their wedding. If you haven't heard the Swedish crooner you will have to take my word for it, Jens Lekman is the ultimate romanitc performer any soon to be married couple could hire. The Swedish heartthrobe exraordinaire will woo every man's girlfriend, and maybe a few men on Monday night at Lincoln Hall.
Even with his romantic, old-school, and at many times self-deprecating lyrics, Lekman captivates his audience as if he were performing a private show for each fan. The man known for his EP's, with nearly 13 out and only two full length albums, has another one out. An Argument With Myself has been put out by Secretly Canadian, the label behind Yeasayer and Magnolia Electric Co. to name a few.On tour with Lekman is Geoffrey O'Connor, former member of Crayon Fields. With hints of trance and lounge music, this Melbourne, Australian native brings a classic old dreamy, vintage 70's feel. You can find his new album, Vanity Is Forever over at his bandcamp. Grab a Three Floyds, and maybe one for you date too, and catch Jens Lekman and Geoffrey O'Connor at Lincoln Hall Monday, October 3rd. 18 show, sold out and show starts at 9PM.
