I AM SO BUMMED ROBYN IS NOT OPENING IN SEATTLE.

l LOVE ROBYN SO MUCH I AM YELLING.

LN7, she's a Swedish dance/electo/pop (seriously, I don't know how to define her well) singer. And she's amazing.

And Wolf Gang is a singer from the UK (live with a full band) with an indie pop rock sound. I would love for him to open my show. I'm hoping to catch him at Coachella.

I don't go to concerts to see opening acts, so I don't care who they are. But I always pay attention, particularly if it's an artist I've never heard of. You just never know, you just might end up discovering something new that you like. It's how I discovered Arcade Fire*, as I had no idea who they were several months before they opened for U2.



*Obligatory Arcade Fire reference by yours truly.

This is true. and me also on how I discovered AF.. (thank you U2 for playing Wake up on their Vertigo Tour).

However, I have seen Robyn on Saturday Night Live and didn't care for her.

Fair enough. But seeing something on TV and in person are two different things. All I'm saying is, unless it's The Fray (fuck you, U2), then you should at least give the opener a chance.

I get that not everyone even likes dancey pop music, much less loves it like I do. I just wish more people loved Robyn, because she's legitimately amazing. I was thrilled she got to be on SNL, but if you aren't a pop or dance music fan, it's likely that it's just not going to be for you.

I would be psyched if Robyn was opening for them here, but unfortunately she's not. Also, they're not playing here.

I don't like pop/dance music. I certainly will take notice and watch. And yes The Fray (ugh).. awful. Just not excited about it.

I'd been wondering who their opening acts were going to be. Interesting options.

Looks like I'm going to need to brush up a bit on either Marina and the Diamonds (whom I think I heard a song by once, and liked it) and Emile Sande.

Agreed.

I always feel for the opening acts. It can't be easy to come out and perform before a big-named artist and have to deal with a crowd who's mainly there to see the main event. And if they get treated nasty by the crowd, I feel really bad for them.

I don't know a lot by Robyn, but I like what I have heard from her . I wouldn't have minded her as an opening act at all.
