If you're into heartbreak and Swedes (and who isn't?) Jens Lekman headlines the Granada Theatre tonight. Local lovely songstress Sarah Jaffe opens. Do try and make it out.
I've already plugged the show in our print version but, as somebody once said, "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture." So I'll just say that Lekman will wow you with his indie-pop neo-crooning and that Sarah Jaffe writes some of the finest songs coming out of Dallas right now. It's far better to throw YouTube videos at you (after the jump). Enjoy. -- Andrea Grimes
