Jens Lekman, Nov. 16

New blog, new attitude (not really). So what better way to inaugurate this special occasion than talking about Jens Lekman's entertainment brilliance?

Granted this video is of him performing in Dallas on Nov. 13, I was privileged to make my way over to The Drunken Unicorn three nights later. And lemme tell ya--despite its uncomfortable atmosphere that any small, crowded venue brings you, it was all worth it. I couldn't move the entire night, and was slightly disappointed that he didn't bring his band, but he pulled that shit off, especially when he did crowd favorite "A Sweet Summer's Night in Hammer Hill."

He's a comedian who happens to be an amazing musician. Ever listen to the lyrics? You should. He's a great storyteller.
