best dancer: lykke li. girl's got the moves. i have sweet video of her performing "dance dance dance", but having a hard time uploading that goodness. tips on how to make it happen would be great. i did get this pretty decent pic.
must encore: "tonight" and tribe called quest cover of "can i kick it?". lykke gave us a treat. she didn't sing "tonight" the last time i saw her at joe's pub. i was real disappointed since it was the song that pretty much enamored me to her. she sang it on the kexp cmj session this afternoon too. last night it was sweet and the perfect indie lullaby before bed. you can download for the track for free on her site under "secret chapter".
to end the set of sets, lykke asked if we wanted something special and the crowd roared. she busts out the TCQ. with call and response. "can i kick it?" "yes you can!" billyburg hipsters aren't so into the ol' school hip hop. i think they freaked out more when the band broke into vampire weekend's "cape cod kwassa kwassa" mashed with "dance dance dance". what a shame. i was hoping for some of this action.
questionable star sighting (#12): randy harrison (aka justin of QAF). jac recognized him at the bar, and I literally went to check it out. i had to. wassup with all my QAF men coming back in my life? first gale on desperate housewives. p.s. get well soon gale.
