Lykke Li & First Aid Kit – Sound Academy, Toronto

A very goth looking Lykke Li and a down-to-earth folksy First Aid Kit dropped by Toronto recently. I was really looking forward to First Aid Kit, but their acoustic sound didn’t quite fit the large venue and being an all ages show, we missed half the set due the show starting around 8PM as advertised. FAK have incredible voices and harmonies and are now backed up with a drummer. I’ll catch them again when they come back to promote their forthcoming album, The Lion’s Roar. Regardless, it was a good night even if it ended before 11!  Below, Lykke does the megaphone thing (personally, I think The Butthole Surfers did this to much better effect in ’86, but that’s a whole other story.) Peace.
