Jens Lekman took up residency at The Empty Bottle in Chicago this past January and made welcoming in the New Year a warmer kinder experience. Since then Jens has toured in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Phillipines, mainland Europe and the UK, but not until now has he returned to the States.

You can find Jens performing solo in Los Angeles December 4 at the Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel (8440 Sunset Blvd.) at 8pm, as part of the Mondrian’s new concert series that will also feature performances by Glasser, Warpaint, Yacht, and Peter from Peter, Bjorn, and John among others. To reserve a spot at this show, RSVP at

Jens will be in Brooklyn December 10 performing at the Green Building on Union (450 Union St.), doors at 8pm and show at 9:30pm. This will also be a solo show. Expect some surprises including new material. Lekman himself says “It will be special and maybe we can have one of those house parties afterwards, like we had last time? If my friends neighbors are cool with that, I’ll let you know.”

If you missed Jens’ latest song “The End of the World is Bigger Than Love,” you can still download it HERE. Stay tuned for lots more from Jens in 2011!
