Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit returned to New York City for the first time since their tour with Lykke Li. Music Hall of Williamsburg was the second of two shows; the previous night was at Irving Plaza, where they had technical difficulties. They even poked fun of the audio problems, which led to a great moment of the girls performing the song "Ghost Town" without any microphones, to which the crowd sang along.
Brooklyn definitely showed the sisters a ton of love, as well as for the opening act Dylan LeBlanc. If you ever get a chance to see First Aid Kit live, please do so. They are amazing live.
First Aid Kit opened up their set with "In The Morning" from "The Big Black & The Blue", followed either directly or shortly afterward by "Hard Believer", which they dedicated to Richard Dawkins.

Mike Mogis, who produced "The Lion's Roar" among other indie favorites, played a number of instruments. Here, he's playing the mandolin, but he also played lap steel guitar throughout the night.

The last song of the night was "King of the World". Dylan LeBlanc joined First Aid Kit on stage to sing Conor Oberst's vocal parts. Amazing energy to end the show.
