One of my favorite music blogs is based up in Dallas. Chris from Gorilla VS. Bear has parlayed his good taste in music into booking shows in Dallas and now, apparently, in Austin too.
Our fair city will have two chances to hear the beautiful Swedish-pop sounds of Lykke Li. She'll be doing an in-store at Waterloo Records around 5pm, then she'll be at Antone's later in the evening.
You can still get tickets for the Antone's gig, happening tomorrow night, if you're interested. Scratch that, the show is sold-out. If you REALLY want to go though, I'm sure you could get in ;-).

I feel like Lykke Li's popularity has been a slow-burner. I heard hype about her around this time last year. Then when SXSW '08 came up she played like a billion shows, lately I have heard her music on the Time Warner Cable, Adult Alternative music station as well as an episode of Grey's Anatomy and/or Gossip Girl.
Here's some vid so you can hear her music:
