Swedish singer Tove Styrke recently played at the Tractor Tavern in support of her third studio album, Sway, released earlier this year. It was the last show for Tove and her two-member backing band during the US leg of the Sway Tour, which is continuing now in Europe. It was an elaborate stage for the venue with hundreds of individually lit white roses – and Tove passed out fresh red roses to the audience near the end of her set. Young singer-songwriter Au/Ra opened.
