Lindsey Stirling is a classically trained violinist. But instead of playing in symphonies and orchestras, she's combined her love of violin with dubstep and modern dance (she taught herself how to dance by watching YouTube videos). She made it to finalist status on "America's Got Talent," and has made fans of many a gamer with her renditions of themes from The Legend of Zelda (and even has done a duet of Zelda tunes with herself), Assassin's Creed III and Skyrim, to name a few. Her tour swings through New Haven to Toad's Place on Feb. 6, and we're pretty curious to see what it entails.
Feb. 6, 8:30 p.m., $17-$20, Toad's Place, 300 York St., New Haven, (203) 624-TOAD, toadsplace.com.
