The January Concert Trilogy: Day 3

The third and final of the concert trilogy took place at Hoxton Bar and Grill (you may have noticed, dear reader, that each night the venues have gotten increasingly smaller) to see Lykke Li.

To be honest, I had only come along with the intention of seeing Lykke Li, and hoping that the support acts sets would be short and sweet, but to my surprise and delight, the first two acts were brilliant!

First up was the Pencil Toes, who sounded like a less raw, more pop orientated Be Your Own Pet, with a singer who resembled a blonde version of Paramore's Hayley Williams. Oh, and the drummer was amazing!

Next up was Fanfarlo, (which, we first thought was the stage crew setting up for the next band!) who were akin to Arcade Fire, via the Spinto Band.

Each member revolved around a multitude of instruments including xylophone, violin, trumpet, and mandolin. They were indeed very fun, and for lack of a better word, “cute”. They need to be signed.

Soon after, Lykke Li and band took to the stage.

(and claim to fame: She walked through the crowd to get to the stage and grazed past me!)

Note to self: when writing blogs write them as soon after the date as possible: I've forgotten exact details, but suffice it to say, it was a great gig!
