Has it really been 10 years since Jens Lekman played Milwaukee? Unless someone knows otherwise, it appears the Swedish indie darling last played our fair city March 29, 2008 at the Pabst Theater. Sheesh. Well, fast-forward a full decade and prepare for a much-needed reintroduction, because Lenkman is set to play The Back Room @ Colectivo Friday, February 9. Finally.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. General admission tickets are $15 and go on sale Friday, November 17 at 10 a.m. Lekman’s latest album, 2017’s Life Will See You Now, is an absolute delight, and opening track “To Know Your Mission” is gorgeous and perfect.
