Concert announcement – Lights Acoustic at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver
Lights will play two shows at the Rio Theatre May 3 and 4 in support of her new album, Siberia Acoustic.
The record is a stripped-down version of Siberia, her 2011 album. Siberia Acoustic will be released April 30.
Stripped-down though it may be, the album features guest appearances by Owl City, Max Kerman of Arkells and Coeur de pirate. The first single from the album is¬†ďCactus In The ValleyĒ¬†featuring Owl City, which will be available March 19.
From the PR: ďIt’s really special the way just a guitar and vocal speaks to the heart, an intimacy that a lot of production can’t convey quite the same way,Ē said Lights, aka Valerie Poxleitner. ďThere is a time and a place for each, Siberia in its full form was a different kind of journey than this acoustic record, but this is the version of the songs I sit down and play at home when I’m alone.Ē
