Toronto electro-pop success story Lights (born Valerie Poxleitner) has certainly flourished after touring and recording with Owl City a few years ago. Now she has her own legion of dedicated fans in both her native Canada and the U.S. This intimate show at the Varsity will allow Lights' growing local audience a chance to get up close and personal with the material on her bold new record, Siberia, an album that finds the former Juno Best New Artist award winner more confident and cheerful as she grows into both her success and her spiraling, textured sound. Whether her longtime pal Adam Young drops in on this show is anyone's guess. With Ambassadors. All ages.
