"As you might know, I'm a debut artist," said Sweden's latest indie-pop export Lykke Li. "I only have ten songs."

But those ten songs (plus a few covers) were more than enough to make a sold-out crowd at the Black Cat happy last night, although there was a definite sense after the hour-long set that fans wanted more. It was hard not to be charmed by Li's performance, between her memorable tunes and rather uniquely spastic dance moves.

Seeing as how the crowd was a hip, blogger-friendly set, I'm sure you'll be able to find a slew of words written on this show in the very near future, so I'll just leave off with the photos.

    what covers did she sing?

  • Brandon Wu

    I remember at least these two-

    Wendy Rene - After Laughter
    Tribe - Can I Kick It? (which was... interesting...)

  • Vivian

    I'm so upset that I didn't see her at Black Cat last night!

    And, Vampire Weekend's "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" about three songs in.

    I never expected her live show to come across like Bow Wow Wow fronted by M.I.A. That was truly jaw-dropping.
