SLO Brew-ki-oh-ki-ay!

If you’re wondering what’s been missing from your musical life, it’s Lindsey Stirling, a YouTube sensation who blends classical violin, modern dance, and … Legend of Zelda? She recently released her self-titled debut album, which hit No. 1 on iTunes’ Top 15 Most-Downloaded Electronic albums. She’s got more than 137 million YouTube views. And she plays covers of soundtrack themes from games like Legend of Zelda and Skyrim, making the pixie-esque cutie the darling of gaming geeks everywhere! “My musical style is a reflection of my personality,” Lindsey said in press materials, “and through it I hope to share my belief that no one should be afraid to be themselves. All my songs were created to depict specific themes that I pulled from my own life experiences. ‘Spontaneous Me’ is about having the courage to love yourself for who you are.” Check her out on YouTube, then join the fun on Tuesday, Nov. 13 (8 p.m.; all ages; $18 presale or $20 at the door).
