IG Summer Concert Series: Lykke Li

On August 3rd my brother and I drove to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles’ beautiful Griffith Park to see Lykke Li perform. If you ever have a chance to visit this venue, I highly recommend it. So pretty!

When we got there an opening band, Fool’s Gold, was performing. I had a celebrity spotting:

Afterwards another opener, Best Coast performed. They were actually pretty decent.
