Elly Jackson of LaRoux

I proved today that Twitter is not entirely useless!  [Side note, you can follow me at According2g, if you are interested].  LaRoux announced via Twitter that they’d be doing an intimate performance at the Renaissance Hotel in New York in the afternoon of November 16, 2010 and I was front row (as always) to catch all the action.  I met LaRoux’ lead singer Elly Jackson prior to the show and she was extremely nice (more on that to come, so stay tuned).  The lobby of the Renaissance Hotel was turned into a lounge setting and LaRoux performed a 4 song acoustic set.  I’d estimate that less than 50 people were there so in addition to getting to hear different versions of LaRoux’ songs, the setting was extremely intimate!  Apparently the show is being broadcast in Times Square later today and will probably surface on the internet shortly thereafter.  The band opened and closed with a nice chill-out version of “In For The Kill.”  Next was a smooth version of “I’m Not Your Toy.”  Elly Jackson sang “Bulletproof” with just her on guitar (which was really cool) and the band closed like they opened, with “In For The Kill.”  They asked if we would not video the show, but you know me – between having selective hearing  and not wanting to disappoint my beloved readers, I had no choice – so stay tuned for a video of “Bulletproof” in the next few days. LaRoux is playing New York’s Terminal 5 on November 17, 2010.

Swedish singer Robyn is on top of the world right now.  After scoring a worldwide smash with “Show Me Love,” in the 1990s, she faded out of the spotlight for almost 10 years and has begun her world domination again.  Putting out an ambitious 3 albums this year, Robyn did a very special and very exclusive performance at the P.C Richard and Son Theater in New York on July 29, 2010, and thanks to winning a contest on one of my favorite sites, Sheena Beaston, I was there in the front row to catch all the excitement! Thanks Sheena B, you know I love you!!

Robyn did a 7 song set, that featured her new single “Dancing On My Own.”  A video will be coming soon, but bear with me, I am only one person with tons of experiences!  She also performed her signature song “Show Me Love” as well as “Hang With Me,” and “With Every Heartbeat.”  I am seeing Robyn again next week along with Dan Black and Kelis and after tonight’s performance, I already know I am going to have a great time!

See 2 more photos of Robyn as well as the set list after the jump.
