Loving Li’s music since the first time I heard it made me a little worried about attending the show. You know that feeling you get when you realllly like an artist then you hear them live and it sounds so shitty that you never listen to them again? Well, lucky for me, that wasn’t the case. In fact, it was the opposite.
Li gave the crowd every ounce of her energy, saying she was an old soul for the night and we were her young people. The petite yet soulful Swede belted out tunes from her ‘Youth Novels’ album throwing in one or two new ones. At one point, Miike Snow even joined Li on stage for a jamboree. Not one dull moment at this show.
Beyond the music, Li’s style was intensely inspiring to me. She wore all black. A blousy tunic, liquid leggings, and a ruffled scarf. Utterly uncomplicated and chic.
