IKEA isn’t the only great Swedish export.
Since we first heard The Cardigans’ sweet-voiced lead Nina Persson sing “Lovefool” on the Romeo & Juliet soundtrack, we’ve been smitten. While that band is no more, we can still indulge our girl crush. Her new musical endeavor, A Camp, just dropped an EP of classic cover songs yesterday and take the stage at Richard’s tonight.
There’s also a Canadian component to her act—playing keys on tour is Toronto singer-songwriter Emm Gryner. Now that’s girl power.
A Camp, Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at Richard’s on Richards, 1036 Richards St., Vancouver, 604-687-6794; tickets $15 at www.ticketmaster.ca
