Actually I take it back; the head on promo shot can work. But it's in the photoshoped details; like the ground strewn with skulls and the RIP DISCO tombstone.

Robyn / NY Times & more

(photo: NY Times / Hiroyuki Ito)

“I think it’s almost on the day, 10 years ago, that I was here with my first album,” said Robyn, and there was a cheer. “But this is the first time that I have ever played live in the United States of America.” And then came an ovation so loud and so long that she seemed faintly embarrassed by it.

Her first album was “Robyn Is Here,” and it took her from her native Sweden to charts and radio stations all over the world. Two of her collaborators were the Swedish producers Denniz Pop and Max Martin, pop scientists who had already worked with Ace of Base and would go on to work with Britney Spears, among many others. Back then Robyn’s songs seemed like shiny links in a long chain of cheerful Swedish hits. (continue at

Spin, Stereogum, and Perez Hilton have lots more photos & video up.

There are still some tickets left for her shows here Friday Feb 15 and Saturday Feb 16.

UPDATE: Both nights are sold out. There will be some standing room tickets available at the door.

In garish contrast to DIY scene-builders like Todd P and Rubulad, Szufnarowski and his promotions company, Rocks Off, favor more old-fashioned entertainments: boats with bands (say, Motley Crue covers and a cruise to Shea), Coney Island Fun Packs (with tickets to the Cyclone, the go-karts, and a scuzzy bar called Chi-Chi's), and straight novelty acts (for example, a wicked accordionist who can double as an Axl Rose impersonator—Corn Mo, whom Szufnarowski once managed—or Captured! By Robots, actual robots who play death metal). Also jam bands, tribute acts, and children. Mostly, Rocks Off puts on rock shows at top-tier Manhattan venues, like the Knitting Factory, the Gramercy Theater, and the Highline Ballroom. With an old-school showbiz address at 44th Street, Szufnarowski, his three full-time employees, and several interns occupy a back office at the School of Rock, where they build evenings from a veritable menagerie of local talent and national acts (the Butthole Surfers' Gibby Haynes will front the School of Rock All-Stars at the Highline Ballroom on February 17). Glossy flyers compete for shelf space with Mexican wrestling masks, displayed on mannequin heads.
