DISCLAIMER: I wanted to write this the day after I saw her show, but I had too much work to do, so I’m having trouble remember exactly what songs she played and in what order, so forgive me for not being able to remember.
Pardon my lack of entries recently: I’ve been so busy this semester that I simply had to forgo writing a couple entries in order to finish my school work.
A couple Saturdays ago, I got to see Lindsey Sterling on tour, and it was an awesome experience. If you haven’t heard of Lindsey Sterling, I think it’s time you became acquainted with her with this video:
She’s very well-known for doing a cover of popular game series The Legend of Zelda, and for doing a dub step song utilizing the violin. Also, she was on America’s Got Talent, but I didn’t find out about that until recently. LOL.
Anyway, let’s jump into the review, starting with (what I think was) her opener, a boy band DJ group. My friend noticed it while we were discussing aspects of DJ’ing, but one of the DJ’s had a leather jacket and shades (The Cool One), the other in a polo and jeans (The Hard Worker), and the last in a jacket and an awful-looking scarf (The Goof/Slacker). Also, scarf man was pretty bad at dancing. Nonetheless, the crowd seemed to enjoy the music and got them pumped up. I thought they were pretty cookie-cutter in terms of DJ’s, but hey, playing Skrillex isn’t bad in my book.
Once Lindsey finally came on-stage, the crowd really went crazy. I forgot what order she played her songs, but I know she played most (if not all) of her songs from her album a cover of what I’m pretty sure was Evanescence‘s “Bring Me To Life” (someone please correct me if I was wrong. LOL).
She had a couple intermissions sessions, one of which was her acting like a snobby star (which reminded me of High School Musical‘s Sharpay Evans. A reference, Lindsey?) and another of her pianist/music producer and drummer partying to remixed versions of some recent and old songs, which went into Lindsey coming on-stage and finishing with them.
If you’re a fan of Lindsey Sterling, I would definitely recommend seeing her live. She sounds much better live and has an electrifying stage presence. If you’re not a fan, watch that video or see if she’s playing near you sometime and check her out. Tickets for me were a very cheap $30, and you might find yourself a fan with just one or two songs.
