On Wednesday night, Price and I went to see Lenka perform at Cafe 939. I have been a fan of Lenka since coming across her first album “The Show” (2008). So when I heard she was coming out with a new album and then touring I was ready to buy tickets as soon as they went on sale.
Lenka put on a fantastic show. There was a wide mix of songs from both her first album and the latest one, “Two”. I loved the personality she put into her performance. There was a lot of gestural storytelling to go along with the lyrics that added a lot of fun to the show. Plus she threw out candy at the beginning of the show since there is no alcohol served at Cafe 939, so if you can’t be buzzed, you might as well have a sugar high.
The majority of the people that I told that I was going to see Lenka responded with “who?” but as soon as I sent them a link to “The Show” they knew who I was talking about. So now that I have been putting the pieces together, go out and get her CD’s. Trust me, you’ll enjoy them.
PS- Ever so randomly, Price told me on Thursday night that Lenka is 33. okayyyy… “did you look it up?” “yes, I thought she was like 18.”
PPS- This was my 6th concert of the year. My goal was 5. I am on a roll!!!
