Night Flyin' Robyn


She's like a cross between Mary Lou Retton and a punk skateboarder boy--it's Swedish sensation Robyn, making a rare US appearance. She had a bit of attention here in the late '90s, with the single "Show Me Love," but at Pangea she had everyone dancing with new material, including a medley of pop hooks from Nenah Cherry, Salt'n'Peppa, and Snoop Dogg. It was an awesomely energized and together performance--she's feisty and commanding but has kind of a pixie bubblegum vibe going on, I think because she's so tiny, it's like she's bouncing up there. And she did "Jack U Off" for her encore!!
