Subject line says it all and holy crap! In all likelihood, I was feet from where this was happening, having dinner with my lovely ladyfriend. The encore in question (which consists of renditions of "Julie" and "Tram 7 To Heaven") took place in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood, home to the Logan Square Auditorium, where Jens Lekman played this past Friday, the 2nd. The auditorium is right next to this awesome cafe called Lula. Excellent trivia note, kids: Ira Glass has called Lula one of his favorite places to eat in Chicago.
So, as we all know, Jens played Minneapolis' Triple Rock Social Club (which itself has some pretty tasty grub) the next night, Saturday the 3rd. Did Jens do something similar for that night? Did anyone happen to catch it, either in the flesh or on videotape? If so, leave a comment or email me at Jon AT minneapolisfuckingrocks DOT com. Thanks.
