Lykke Li was quite impressive on Sunday night, but openers First Aid Kit truly were a welcome surprise. After only hearing their endearing cover of Fleet Foxes’ “Tiger Peasant Mountain” (also on one of my mixtapes from way back), I thoroughly enjoyed the sister duo’s quick set of old and new tracks. The booming drummer also encouraged, but didn’t overwhelm the Swedes’ subtle sounds. Pick up First Aid Kit‘s The Lion’s Roar in January.
I’ve only been to two shows at Buckhead Theatre, but I’m starting to think it might have the best sound in ATL. I read some initial so-so reviews over the past year, but I think owners have worked out whatever issues plagued early shows.
