Gig-gles: Jens Lekman live at The Annexe, KL - 9 December 2008

There are 8 reasons why seeing Jens Lekman live is better than listening to him on the radio. Number one, he doesn't get played on the radio. Number two, he tours with a man that's 12 feet tall. Number three, they hang around the gallery with the fans before the show begins. Number four, he plays air glock in the outtro of The Opposite Of Hallelujah. Number five, he narrates the background story of A Postcard To Nina in between the song. Number six, if the monitors don't work, he'll stop using the mic altogether, which he did on Julie. Number seven, he and his 12-foot friend will dance in the crowd. Number eight... hmmm... maybe there's no number eight. 

Ah yes, evidently I was mixing it up with deep-fried pork knuckles. Oh, you've never met my pork knuckles? It's not hard to mix the two up. For one, my deep-fried pork knuckles also don't get played on radio. They also tour with a man that's 12 feet tall and they also hang around art galleries with fans. My deep-fried pork knuckles also play air glock to the outtro of The Opposite Of Hallelujah and narrate the background story of A Postcard To Nina. And if the monitors fail, my deep-fried pork knuckles will also sing without mic. They will also dance in the crowd but the thing that really sets my pork knuckles apart from Jens Lekman is that they also do the polka. 

Don't you boys? Yeah, shake those trotters for me. Yeah. Sommore. Yeah. Good knuckles.
