Oh Land and G
On January 26, 2011, Danish electro-pop sensation played a sold out show at Hiro Ballroom in New York. Oh Land (nee Nanna Oland Fabricius) is as gorgeous as she is talented. Her music is extremely catchy and when I met the singer on the rise, I wished her the best of luck in her career. She was very sweet. She’s landed an opening slot for OMD’s first US Tour in 20 years and I expect those performances will catapult her into superstardom. Thanks again Oh Land! I’m excited to hear great things!

Danish electro-pop singer Oh Land(nee Nanna Oland Fabricius) is set to be pop music’s next biggest act. She played to a packed house at Hiro Ballroom in New York on January 26, 2011. Her music is catchy, she has a great stage setup (featuring images being projected onto balloons) and she’s gorgeous! Her debut EP came out last September and she’s set to release her full length record in the first part of 2011. She’s landed an opening slot on OMD’s first US tour in 20 years beginning in March and it looks like she’s about to conquer the music world.
Her hour long set consisted of crowd favorites “Sun of a Gun” (and a video of that song will be coming soon, so stay tuned), “Rainbow” and also performed a cover of Fleet Foxes’ “Turn It Up.” If you live in Los Angeles, Oh Land will be playing February 1, 2011 at the Troubadour and February 2, 2011 at Echo. You’d better catch Oh Land at a small venue while you still have the chance!
See the set list after the jump.

Happy birthday to comedian and talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres who was born on January 26. I’ve had a few funny encounters with Ellen, but you’re going to have to wait for my book to hear them. I can’t give away all my secrets for free! Happy birthday, Ellen!
