    OMG how did I not think to find this thread earlier!

    So here's my situation:

    Like any sane music lover, I bought 2 tickets to this show the moment I heard about it like it was a no-brainer. My usual partner in crime (fellow Coachella junkie), however, has now moved out east, but I figured I had plenty of time to find an almost worthy replacement (only criterion being that they happen to be familiar with either Royksopp or Robyn, really).

    Welp, here I am, 2 days before the show without a date. I mean, I CAN think up a number of people who'd tag along because they have nothing better to do. But c'mon, Royksopp & I go way back (oh, me & Robyn too, back when she was a guilty pleasure in the 90s (she was the 2nd CD I ever bought, don't judge)), and so I'd like to think I'm holding out for a reason.

    So, long story short:
    -I'm a chick in San Diego, and am looking for a fellow fan as a date (preferably sane) (can meet in LA/wherever accordingly).
    -I have an extra ticket in Section E, Row 9.
    -I would appreciate being at least partially reimbursed ($60 after fees).
    -I'm also down for pre-show festivities.

    Please PM me if you or someone else you know is interested. Thanks much!

    Amy

    I think the best plan is to meetup before the show.

    I am going to take the train from NoHo so I am going to be getting to Hollywood and Highland hopefully around 6pm!

    Maybe we can all meet at CPK at hollywood and highland? There IS a bar and plenty of seating, we don't HAVE to get expensive pizza, we can just buy drinks and talk shit!

    I dont know many bars in that area!

    We land around 330. Not sure what hotel we're staying at yet (I'm going to try out the Hotel Tonight app; we have a $50 credit there, but I won't know until noon where we'll be). I'm going to need a big baby nap; been up since 530 already. Will keep an eye on the thread and try to make it over.

    Salah-are you ok? Do you need anything?

    I'll be looking for you all. I will be wearing a big black hat and a shirt with angel wings on the back. Although, it looks like my wings may not see much air cuz it's crazy foggy.

    Still on cloud nine... emtgreg informed me that "Karin" was actually NOT Karin, but rather, someone else who sounds just like her. Those Fever Ray outfits sure had me fooled

    Both performances were awesome. I was kind of underwhelmed by Roysksopp's San Francisco show in March, something I was wary of acknowledging prior to them just completely destroying the stage last night. The sound system and light show were incredible and really did them justice.

    Then Robyn -- it was our third time seeing her in the last year, starting with a tiny gay club in Orlando, FL, and to see how far she's come in that short amount of time (in regards to the sizes of venues she's filling up) and marvel at her energy still being so strong after more than a year of touring was a delight. We got to hear songs off her Body Talk records that we hadn't yet heard, like "Dancehall Queen" and "Call Your Girlfriend." Because I'm obsessive-compulsive, I tracked the set lists for all three shows, but for now, here's just the one from last night:

    1. We Dance to the Beat
    2. Don't Fucking Tell Me What to Do
    3. Fembot
    4. (an old song that I don't know the name of -- if anybody else does, please let me know)
    5. Dancehall Queen
    6. Cobrastyle
    7. Dancing On My Own
    8. Indestructible
    9. Love Kills
    10. Be Mine!
    11. Call Your Girlfriend
    (encore)
    12. In My Eyes
    13. Hang With Me
    14. With Every Heartbeat
    (encore)
    15. None of Dem (w/ Royksopp)
    16. The Girl and the Robot (w/ Royksopp)
    (encore)
    17. U Should Know Better
    18. Konichiwa Bitches
    19. Dancing Queen/Show Me Love

    I also tracked the Royksopp set list, though the 1st and 3rd songs were instrumentals and I'm not familiar enough with their work to identify song names, so any insight from gunz or anyone else would be appreciated:

    1. (instrumental)
    2. Happy Up Here
    3. (instrumental)
    4. Remind Me
    5. What Else Is There?
    6. True to Life
    7. Eple
    8. Only This Moment
    9. Poor Leno
    (encore)
    10. This Must Be It

    That performance of "Poor Leno" was fucking stellar, by the way. And I have to quibble with the comment that the Karin stand-in for "What Else Is There?" and "This Must Be It" sounds exactly like Karin. She sounds good, don't get me wrong, but part of what makes Karin so special is that her voice is so distinct. That singer's voice is a fair approximation but she ain't no Karin. Glad you had fun, though.

    She's the same singer that's been singing with them for a while though. Isn't she?

    I wasn't there last night, but they've had a Karin stand-in since the Junior tour, so i'd assume it was the same person.

    Hey all, great show! I was lucky and won some tickets last week from a radio station. Wasn't planning to go due to having recently seen both artists and having so many other shows this & next month, but I was quite happy to score those tix. It was a whole new experience seeing them play at the bowl, especially Robyn (in contrast with her Belly Up appearance last year.)

    The singer is Anneli Drecker, who is their regular tour singer and also the studio vocalist for a handful of Röyksopp tracks including You Don't Have a Clue. She does sound enough like Karin to pass, but not exactly.

    Was anyone at the Club Nokia show in '09? My friends told me that Karin made an appearance, but I have a feeling that they were also fooled by Anneli. Just curious either way. I guess it will make me feel less foolish for skipping it if it wasn't really her!

    Anyway... I'm also OCD and took down the setlist for Robyn (and also don't know the names of the instrumentals, by Röyksopp or nearly anyone else
    I have one discrepancy - I am sure that Robyn did "With Every Heartbeat" in the first encore after "Hang With Me," making it song #14. Otherwise the same.

    Great finish to the HB season!

    I'm pretty sure it was Karin at the Nokia show, but don't quote me.

    I feel like Karin has never performed with Royksopp in the states.

    All the gays in attendance must've confused me.

    You're right. My wife caught the error, too. I even had it in my notes on my phone but I just overlooked the song when transcribing the set list. I've edited my post to correct it.
