El Perro Del Mar
Sweden

joined on stage by Lykke Li
Sweden

Bao told me that...

Lykke Li's affectuous pop paired with her bouncing dance moves were the highlight of the evening. El Perro Del Mar ended the Swedish Invasion night with an inspired, yet less energizing set. It wasn't until Lykke Li came back to join her for a couple of songs that the energy came back to fill the room.
Anna Ternheim played first of three at this Swedish ladies show (@ Bowery Ballroom) that is part of a Swedish ladies tour. More pictures from last night (May 8, 2008) below....

The show was amazing..especially Lykke Li...Annie Clark (St. Vincent) and Zach Condon (Beirut) were in the audience.

Great show. Agreed about the energy of Lykke Li. She's captivating.

I don't know. I saw her once at Mercury Lounge and she was kind of annoying (I am actually not a fan of her moves). I wasn't there last night anyway but in my house I'd play El Perro del Mar's music any day rather than Lykke Li's.

@eduardo: lykke li's dancing has changed a lot since she performed with the shout out louds @ the music hall of williamsburg in the fall. it's less no-one-is-watching bedroom dancing and more stylized. she and perro were both captivating for entirely different reasons.

i was right there next to whomever took these pics... i cut out after LL, because i wasn't jazzed to see EPDM.. i really wish i'd caught after laughter, though.

great show though, really.

The guy who took these photos was an a-hole. He pushed people out of his way and continued to take photos with a blinding flash after being told that he was distracting the singers. This guy needs to learn some manners and this website should be ashamed for using his photos.

You sure you're talking about the photographer who took THESE photos, bob? Was there only one photographer there?

I didn't use flash whatsoever that evening. There were a lot of other photographers that night so you are probably referring to someone else.

You should be ashamed for accusing the wrong people of things they didn't do.
