Lindsey Stirling, Warfield in San Francisco

Lindsey Stirling, Warfield Theatre in San Francisco 2014

I remember seeing this dancing violinist at UC Berkeley on the night of the 2012 Presidential election. It was a small stage, encircled by sweaty fans, with one spotlight, with CNN’s Presidential coverage blaring on an enormous screen outside. Now, she’s playing The Warfield with neon glow-in-the-dark effects, backup dancers, and the same sweaty dancing violinciados. Amazing how far you’ve come, Linds! Be sure to check out her new album, Shatter Me: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/shatter-me/id844250403

The Revolution Will Be Televised

Compelling piece from Jeff Yang and the WSJ on ABC’s transformative (and long-awaited) move to double down in diversity. The snarky side of me says: “Great! TV finally catches up with YouTube ;)”

From ABC’s Paul Lee: “We do think America has changed….We saw that in the election cycle, we see it in everything that’s happening. [To air these shows is] perfectly appropriate for a network like this; and, in fact, I think it’s the right thing to do now.”
