Three Imaginary Girls Recommend: Feeling Scandinavian?

Fuel up this weekend because there are a couple weeknights this coming week upon which it is imperative to get yourself over to Nectar (in Fremont). This Tuesday and Thursday night, Seattle will be visited by the indie-pop kings of Norway and Sweden. Stoic grumpies will swoon, frozen hearts will melt, and we’ll forget that the days are getting shorter and shorter and dance like it’s high summer!

Tuesday, November 6th: Jens Lekman / Throw Me The Statue / Viktor Sjöberg at Nectar
It’s been two years since Sweden’s Jens Lekman’s last visit to our fine city. Since that time he’s released another critically acclaimed album and charmed even more folks over the landscape with his romantic twists of Magnetic Fields’y guitar pop. With him he’s recruited our favorite newcomers to the Seattle lo-fi indie pop scene (and recent signings to our noble friends Secretly Canadian Records) Throw Me The Statue. Opening up the night is the sexily umlaut’d Viktor Sjöberg, a Swedish DJ extraordinaire. Read our keystrokes, this is not a show to be missed. Need more proof? You should read the thesis we posted about his latest album.

Thursday, November 8th: Sondre Lerche/Dan Wilson at Nectar
On Thursday, head back to Fremont’s Nectar to see Sondre Lerche. The Norwegian singer/songwriter is more than just cute folksy songs about love and nature, his subtle charisma is a force to behold. We’ve seen him tame a drunken wily SXSW crowd and wake up a sleepy aloof Seattle crowd. With his guitar and sweet rapport with the audience he drifts from jazz standards to A-ha-ish catchy tunes to Elvis Costello-y thoughtful songs. If you haven’t seen him before, this is a great opportunity to see him in a cozy setting surrounded by your cool cat peers.
