Swedish rockers Peter Bjorn and John kicked off the first date of their tour — incidentally, their first show in NYC in five years — at Rough Trade on May 2. The three-piece (with the help of two backing members) blew away the sold-out crowd with a selection of pop gems from their treasure trove of a discography, including Young Folks, Objects of My Affection and Dig A Little Deeper, as well as a healthy serving of songs off the band’s upcoming release.
Peter Bjorn and John will be back at it for round two at Baby’s All Right tonight. Their new record, Breakin Point drops June 10.
