Photos: Lykke Li - Los Angeles, Calif.

Lykke Li could easily play to a couple thousand people in a major city, maybe even more, so getting a chance to see her perform a full set at the 450-capacity Roxy Theatre on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip was a treat beyond any usual appearance from the performer and songwriter. The event, billed as StubHub’s Next Stage Concert Series featuring Lykke Li Benefitting Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, was one of ten concerts being put on through August to help children receive the tools and instruction in music that they need.

Li played most of her new album, the masterful I Never Learn, in the set’s first half and stuck to older material and a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs” in the back end. Li seemed well aware of the weight of her songs, introducing Youth Novels’ “Hanging High” with the admission that she was “pretty blue” when she wrote it, adding “not a lot has changed.” Check out photos from the show by scrolling through the gallery above, and keep up with the Stubhub Next Stage Concert Series here.
