Few performers today can hold sway with a large audience with just an acoustic guitar but Jens Lekman is one of them. Performing solo due to visa issues with his band, Lekman's 10-song set (opening for wacky hi-jinks of of Montreal) included old favorites like "A Sweet Summer's Night On Hammer Hill," "Postcard for Nina" and "Black Cab," as well as songs from his new album, I Know What Love Isn't.
More pictures and setlist from Jens' Northside set are below, along with a video of "Hammer Hill" shot by Big Ass Lens.
