Lykke Li saves February, ventures into concert deadzone of Midwestern midwinter

My two favorite things to come out of Sweden this year: Lykke Li and the Morrissey-song-title-inspired child vampire flick, Let the Right One In. And now one is going on tour! And fortunately for humanity, it is not the one with fangs and a primordial need for bloooood.

I am pretty excited about this Lykke Li date in Minneapolis because a) it is a show by non-local band during a stupid, cold month when NOOOOO touring bands ever come through and b) because I never go to the Varsity, even though I kinda like it, and since I cannot afford to pay for this show, I will have to find a way in. A challenge! What a thrill this will surely provide. All of the challenges in my life right now are like, "How can I get money to pay my rent relatively on time?" or "Where's the shovel?" or "Is it humanly possible to work three jobs in one day?" This will be much better, I think.
