For those of you unfamiliar with LIGHTS, she’s a tiny, Canadian, World of Warcraft playing, keytar wielding, comic-book-heroine-slash-intergalactic-electropop-artist. In other words, she’s totally my dream best friend (no offense to my actual best friends, but come on, you guys really need to step it up).
LIGHTS’ debut album “The Listening” will be released tomorrow (10/6), but the album is streaming in its entirety on LIGHTS’ Myspace page right now, so go check it out.
But wait, there’s more! LIGHTS is also starring in the cutest animated comic series on MTV and MTV.com called “Audio Quest.” You can watch the first episode here.
You would think that someone who just won a Juno for “Best New Artist of The Year,” who has an album debuting this week, who is coming off of a tour with Keane, who is about to headline her own tour, and who is starring in an animated series, would be too busy for much else – but this girl is quite the adorable little multitasker. In addition to the aforementioned laundry list, LIGHTS has a gaming video blog where she discusses such games as “Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe” and of course “World of Warcraft.” If you watch her most recent video, you might even catch a special glimpse of her tattoo of the Twinblade of the Phoenix, an epic two-handed sword that I just know my guild master Daniel would kill for. Check it out here.
LIGHTS will be performing live at the Troubadour on November 3, 2009. Definitely go check her out.Troubadour 9081 Santa Monica Blvd
