You know a band is going to be huge when its first show in your city winds up nearly selling out, which is what happened at the Little Dragon show last night. The band is from Sweden, and has only been to the States a couple of times, period. But after last night, I have a feeling they'll start frequenting our country more often. Little Dragon frontwoman Yukimi Nagano's soulful vocals are the main attraction, undulating atop synth, bass and various percussion instruments. There's a drummer in the band, too, but Nagano also assists with percussion, and last night, brought out an odd time-keeping contraption (anyone know what it was?) that she played with a stick. In spite of the relatively sparse instrumentation, Little Dragon's sound is huge and all-consuming, but without being overwhelming.
