Two Nights of Ingrid Michaelson at the Beacon Theatre

November 15th, 2016

Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson grew up in Staten Island as part of an artistic family. She began studying music while very young and went on to do theater, sing in an a cappella group and perform with an improv-comedy troupe during college, all of which propelled her forward into the music world, which at first consisted of busking on subway platforms. But since then, she’s been a mainstay on the radio and the road thanks to a prolific discography filled with witty lyrics and piano-fueled songwriting. Michaelson (above, performing “Hell No” on The Late Late Show with James Corden) put out her seventh studio long-player, It Doesn’t Have to Make Sense (stream it below), a few months ago. The album finds her “delving into a set of sonically robust, emotionally transfiguring anthems recorded in the wake of her mother’s death and the breakup of her marriage,” according to AllMusic. “Michaelson celebrates the ups and downs of life with a combination of poignancy, remembrance and empowerment.” As good as the LP is, Michaelson is most known for live performances, and she returns home with her Hell No Tour for a pair of shows at the Beacon Theatre this week, on Wednesday (which is already sold out) and again on Thursday night. NYC’s AJR open both shows.

Two Nights of the Multitalented Lindsey Stirling This Week

June 16th, 2014

Lindsey Stirling is a busy woman with a wide range of musical interests. She’s a violinist, a composer, a dancer and a performance artist. And thanks to her love of EDM, classical music, dubstep and hip-hop, she’s got a unique sound all her own. People had already begun to hear of Stirling (above, performing “Shatter Me” live at the Kennedy Center), thanks to YouTube and America’s Got Talent before her self-titled debut album (stream it below) arrived in 2012. AllMusic notes that it “carves out a unique new niche in the classical-crossover genre.” But things have really taken off for Stirling with the release of her second album, Shatter Me (stream it below), earlier this year. AllMusic says it “offers up a spirited set of high-octane classical-crossover confections that occupy the barbed wire and flower petal–strewn middle ground between Evanescence, Riverdance, Skrillex and Narnia” and that “she delivers the heat with all of the fire, fury and mad, pixie-ish sweetness that drew millions of people to her Linseystomp YouTube channel.” Now out on the road in support of her new LP, she’s playing bigger rooms, which means you can see her on Wednesday night at Terminal 5 and then on Saturday at the Space at WestburyAJR, three New York City brothers, open both shows.
