Robyn @ Terminal 5
Robyn

During "Dancing On My Own," a song about seeing a lover with someone else, Robyn transformed a somber subject into an empowering dance-your-worries-away anthem that inspired singing from the audience.

Robyn continued to "body talk" with each movement, even during the interludes. After pelvic gyrations against her drummer's drum set and enough twirling in circles to make a person drop dead, Robyn pounded through songs -- her newest single "Indestructible," "Love Kills," "The Girl and the Robot," and "With Every Heartbeat" -- before professing her deep love for New York and exiting the stage.

She reemerged for two dance-infused encores. On the second, she performed her recent song "Dancehall Queen," then transitioned it into a cover of Abba's "Dancing Queen" before performing a gentle version of her 1997 hit "Show Me Love." The crowd was more than happy to do that. -[MTV News]

NYC loves Robyn, and she loves 'em right back. After playing Music Hall of Williamsburg in late July and two shows in August at Webster Hall with Kelis, in addition to a private show (pictures from night 1 at Webster Hall), Robyn circled back to the tri-state area on Wednesday night (11/10) to play Terminal 5 with her tourmates, NYC's Maluca and LA/Londoners Natalia Kills. Robyn ripped through 18 songs across two encores. The full setlist is below along with more pictures from the show.

Last night Robyn appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (which is taped in NYC). Tonight (11/12), she continues her November tour in Toronto.

good to see someone doing the pink look but with better, danceable music.

That picture perfectly summarizes the Terminal 5 concert experience.

11:09 - dead on. you're either packed up front (still with a shitty view), or you're staring at the back of someone's stupid skull.

I'm still feeling funky after that show at MHOW in July. This girl knows how to perform.

11:09 That pic should run under the headline of any T5 related post.

Terminal 5 is not nearly as bad as you jaded fucks make it out to be. I've never once had a problem with it.

ok bowery presents employee

I'm so confused as to why Robyn is now covered on indie blogs, along with Big Freedia and Dominique Young Unique. Is there some selection process that goes on that says we are going to embrace Wavves and Grizzly Bear and a bunch of bands that stick to this formula here, and then lets just throw in these dance and hip-hop acts as well.
It's just odd to me.

1:35 You're thick. Not everyone who likes Terminal 5 is a Bowery Presents employee. It has become increasing better over the years this is coming from a NON BOWERY PRESENTS EMPLOYEE!

The good v. bad T5 argument is SO fucking annoying now.

Like it or not, the venue is (probably) staying open for good, it continues to sell out frequently, and money is generated for artists and the industry. Complaining about how bad you may think it is will change nothing. If you don't like it, then don't go. If the band performing is so motherfucking important for you to see, then go to Philly or Boston to see them. Or settle with T5.

That way you can sit home and do something else and the people who want to go to the show will go to the show. Problem solved.

(note - I am in no way a BP employee or even a fan of Terminal 5, but I've accepted it and moved on)

That 1st pic of Robyn kinda reminds me of some male, semi-androgynous (sp?) singer from some 80's hair/new wave band. I can't rember the names though. That ringing a bell for anyone else?

Natalia Kills? Vanity, via Prince.

Terminal 5 = worst venue in the world. seriously who are you idiots that defend that piece of crap. Im sleepy.....zzzzzzzzz

Posted by Anonymous | November 12, 2010 11:28 PM

i defend terminal 5.

first, the location is great if you're driving. lots of parking available.

second, they have a charming roof bar.

as far as sound quality, i never understood the complaints. If you want good sound quality listen to it at home on your sound system. who goes to a show for the sound quality.

as far as sight lines, just show up really early and you're fine. And even if you can't see the performers it's not that big a deal. it's not an art museum. you're there to listen to the music, not watch.

^^ "who goes to a show for the sound quality."

that may be one of the stupidest statements I've ever read here and that says a lot. Oh wait I'm wrong this is>

Here is a blog with a live mp3 track from Robyn's first NYC show at Highline Ballroom way back in 2008 :

But seriously, why is my topless grandmother on stage?

1:33, just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make them a dumbass. i also like terminal 5 and for some of the same reasons 1:07 does.
