Maybe you have conflicted feelings about Girls—we read your Facebook post about it, we swear—but credit where credit’s due: Even though it was also the theme song for Snookie & JWoww, Icona Pop’s club-to-charts crossover anthem “I Love It” didn’t blow up to national audiences until a fishnet-clad Lena Dunham jumped up and down to its four-on-the-floor beat. In advance of their forthcoming This Is … Icona Pop, out September 24, the Swedish duo play Webster Hall with K. Flay and Sirah. Be on the lookout for Charli XCX: The impossibly talented 21-year-old Londoner featured on “I Love It” originally had her own Gramercy Theatre gig scheduled for tonight, but that’s been postponed to November and moved to Irving Plaza.
