If you've ever listened to Sigur Ros, you know how angelic and wondrous the voice of frontman Jonsi Birgisson is. And (obviously) he brings that same beautiful falsetto to this solo stuff -- released under his first name only -- but with an extra breath of carefreeness and happiness. It's definitely a wonder to see in person; I saw him at Coachella and his music soared into the open air.
So I can only wonder how amazing it would be in an intimate setting. But Jonsi is actually offering everyone that chance on his current tour, performing acoustic shows at small stores. In L.A., he's hitting up the uber-cozy Origami Vinyl on Sunday, Oct. 17. It's a not-to-be-missed performance, for sure, but remember, the space is tiny, so get there long before the 5:30pm start time.
Jonsi appears at 5:30pm on Oct. 17 at Origami Vinyl, located at 1816 W. Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park.
