Jens Lekman Backyard Show

Early last week, a friend tipped me off that Jens Lekman was planning on playing a backyard show somewhere in Sydney’s inner west on the weekend – he’d announced it on his website newsletter smalltalk, and apparently there were limited tickets available on request. Following the email trail, I was lucky enough to be able to attend, and enjoy one of the most relaxed shows I’ve seen in ages.

Jens played with Geoff O’Connor of the Crayon Fields and Sly Hats to an audience of about seventy people, sprawled in the saturday afternoon sun. The event turned out to be a birthday celebration for Simon Mingo, the resident of the house, who had flown Jens and Geoff up from Melbourne especially for the occasion.
