The wonderful people at the Lizard Lounge were crazy enough to let us set up shop every Thursday in the littlest month of the year. It’s going to be a lot of fun, we’ve got a bunch of friends coming out and joining us onstage, and we’ve got a different theme every week. The complete list of dates and details are below… See you there!

Special Guests Ross Livermore Band
We dropped by the Indie Ambassador studio a couple weeks ago to shoot a live session. They were on point in every way. Check out their site to read their take on LiS and hop over to our videos page to see the final result. We threw in a tune from A King’s Ransom as well as a performance of an unreleased track (stay tuned for more on that).
New Year’s Tour
Just in time for the apocalypse, Love in Stockholm is doing a crazy, ill-advised tour of upstate New York and the midwest for New Year’s Eve, the drunk person holiday of the year. It’s going to be a ton of fun, so make sure you check it out…the dates are on the right. Also be sure to check out our Facebook page for updates from the road and follow us on Twitter with #lisontour.
Lizard Lounge Residency
For those of you in the beautiful land of the Greater Boston Area, we might not be home for the holidays, but we’ll be back soon.
We’re playing every Thursday in February at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, and each night is going to be a little different. We had an awesome surprise show there in early December where we showcased a bunch of new material, and there will be more surprises in store…Stay tuned for more info on opening acts, tickets, and all related nonsense atloveinstockholm.com.
Gillette Stadium Welcomed LiS…
for the pre-game show! That’s right, we just played at Patriot Place before the New England Patriots took on the Miami Dolphins this Christmas Eve. Our set was kind of like the game…the first half was a little shaky but we finished strong. Actually the whole set was awesome and we had a blast.
Happy Holidays to everyone and may you all have a prosperous New Year. We’ll see you soon…
We want to give a huge thank you to everyone who came out to our big Halloween blowout on 10/29 at the Middle East, and everyone who made requests on Facebook and Twitter…you guys made it such an amazing night.

By far LiS’ favorite holiday, we are happy to announce our Third Annual Halloween party, which will be at the Middle East Downstairs this year. Last year we played The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover to cover, but this year we’re doing it a little differently…
Love in Stockholm will be performing as the year 1996, with all the music, fashion, Clinton jokes, and random pop culture references we can fit into an hour and a half. It’s going to be a blast, and we’re playing with three great Boston bands Biscuits and Gravy, Insigniya, and Cosmodrome. Tickets are going to go fast, so be sure to pick some up in advance.
Middle East Downstairs
Doors at 8:00 PM
presented by Hear Now Live
Tickets. FB Event.
But what songs are we going to play???
You pick the tunes!
With so many epic songs to pick from, we want to put the setlist into your hands, mostly so we don’t have to decide what to play… Hop on Twitter and tag @loveinstockholm in a tweet with #partylikeits1996 and let us know your favorite songs, random celebrities, stupid pop-culture references, and anything else you think is relevant from the year 1996, and we’ll pick the best ones and play them at the show. After Halloween we’ll post the setlist online, and send the winners a FREE download of an unreleased forthcoming Love in Stockholm track. This means even if you can’t make it to the show, we can still get along like peas and carrots…
