Lykke Li Does Kings of Leon *Updated*

So, I just got back from Waterloo Records, where I saw a 20 minute acoustic set from Lykke Li. Someone in the audience shouted, "Knocked Up!", to which Lykke responded, "That's not my song, but I'll play it if you buy my album.". I didn't recognize the reference until the band started playing the Kings of Leon song.

The audio isn't the same as what I just heard, because the set at Waterloo was much more stripped down and acoustic. I expect you'll be able to see the performance I just saw in the near future though. Waterloo has their own YouTube channel that they post their in-stores on.

In fact here's two shows from this week:

My friend Tessa, who was also at this show, thought Lykke Li looked like an Olsen Twin (hehe)
