hey y’all! this past weekend i had the pleasure of seeing swedish pop sensation robyn play live at the troubadour – which i believe happened to be her first show here in los angeles! the energy level was insane – she has a huge gay following and we were all out in full force that night! her set lasted a little over an hour – and she handled each track with ferocious energy – she’s a tiny little thing – but damn – girlfriend was unstoppable! you might remember her hit from back in ’97 show me love – she did a great stripped down version on saturday night (there’s video posted below – the quality isn’t super but you’ll get the idea!) she also recently released an EP here in the states called the rakomonie which i highly suggest picking up on itunes – which includes an acoustic version of her smash UK hit with every heartbeat (catch the video below – it’s a kick-ass song!) i also love handle me (that video is below as well)
it’s amazing to see someone come from a manufactured pop background – to becoming a unique & individual artist with an incredible style all her own ten years later! right after robyn’s show ended i happened to see one other blogger there – ugh – i won’t name names but i’m sure many of you know who i’m talking about…then i headed straight over to catch ashlee simpson which just like i suspected was a totally different scene – i’ll be posting on that soon! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!
PS have a listen to DJ paul v.‘s interview w/ robyn on indie 103.1’s neon noise! (scroll down inside the player for the last file, click on it to play!)
