Best Concert in the Past 12 Months

Robyn

Every now and then an artist's rise to fame will happen after they've already booked a tour, which results in said artist appearing at smaller venues that they've outgrown in the interim. Such thrillingly intimate shows don't happen often, but one did late last November when Swedish pop superstar Robyn performed at a beyond-sold-out Neumos. It was likely the last time her fans will ever see her in such a close setting (she spent the summer opening for Katy Perry on a giant arena tour), and Robyn made the show memorable, whirling around the Capitol Hill venue's small stage, executing breathless dance moves for over an hour, and never missing a note in the process. The audience went nuts; Robyn put on a master class of finessed pop performance; and the show served as a nagging reminder that there's something Seattle's music scene sorely lacks—a fresh and talented pop diva of our own.
