Peter Bjorn & John @ the Fonda, 7.31.07
The crowned kings of Swedish pop, Peter Bjorn & John, came to Los Angeles yesterday and played a spectacular show with opener Cass McCombs and the Henry Fonda Theater. The show was well rounded and provided a live vividness and energy that's not on the LP, Writer's Block (although that's not to say the album isn't spectacularly recorded ... it just captures a different, refined energy).
From harmonica additions on "Paris 2004" to raved up bongo jam outs during the encore, the show was absolutely fantastic! Unfortunately, the three are returning to Sweden on August 8, but they shall return to L.A. on September 17 -- not too far off! -- for those of you aching for a PB&J live show!
Check out the photos we got and a video clip of "Paris 2004" we caught at the below links!
