Past Event Sound Series: Jens Lekman with special guest Peter Oren

A man in a bright white t-shirt stands to the right of the image, staring directly at the viewer. He is propped up against the muted orange wall to his side. His right arm is outstretched as he pushes against the wall with the palm of his hand. His left arm is bent in a ninety-degree angle, with his hand pointing towards the wall. His forearm rests on the top of his head, casting a slight shadow above his eyes.

We welcome Jens Lekman, from Gothenburg, Sweden, on a short solo tour. Lekman’s unique sensibility draws from his droll sense of humor, romance, and melody, taking inspiration from artists such as Arthur Russell, The Magnetic Fields, Calvin Johnson, Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers. Lekman has an extensive catalogue of releases including his acclaimed full-length, Night Falls Over Kortedala (2007), I Know What Love Isn’t (2012), and Life Will See You Now (2017), all on Secretly Canadian Records. Singer/songwriter Peter Oren opens the show.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Free parking available in The Warhol lot.

This event is co-presented with WYEP.
