Robyn descends on Seattle with sold-out show, free in-store

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Robyn
November 21
Neumos


A sign that electronic music has steadily pulled ahead in popularity, Sunday night's Robyn concert is entirely sold-out - in fact, all tickets were claimed since late September. The Stockholm native bowed to American audiences in 1997 with her mega pop single 'Show Me Love,' but she encountered challenges in producing a follow-up hit and eventually focused her attention and efforts in the European market. Somewhere along the way, Robyn changed musical styles to a more dance-oriented sound - and was even featured on a Basement Jaxx track - and began releasing her material independently. Fast-forward to 2008, her self-titled work containing the international smash 'With Every Heartbeat' finally shot her to stardom behind strong reviews and a Grammy nomination for Best Electronic/Dance Album.

You have to admire Robyn - when the going got tough, she got tougher. Melding bits of light trance and house, pop, and hip-hop, the short-cropped blonde created a sound all her own and the fans came knocking on her door - including Madonna, who asked her to open select dates on the Sticky and Sweet Tour. This year, she spoiled her faithful with two separate releases, Body Talk Pt. 1 and Body Talk Pt. 2, not to mention a tour that finally delivers her to the U.S., where Robyn admirers have been waiting impatiently to see her - she canceled a previous tour due to scheduling conflicts.

Those who unfortunately are without tickets for her Neumos concert are invited to a snippet of her performance, as Robyn will play a brief set of songs during an in-store appearance at Easy Street Records (20 Mercer St.) on Sunday, November 21 at 7 p.m. followed by an autograph session. You must purchase either of the Body Talk CDs in the store on Sunday to get a free wristband that will allow you to get it signed. At the actual show, expect 'Konichiwa Bitches,' 'Cobrastyle,' 'Dancing On My Own,' possibly 'Show Me Love,' and perhaps a speedier version of 'With Every Heartbeat' on the set list.
