Lights is an Canadian Indie Pop princess that you may not be fully acquainted with yet. She recently released the remix of “My Boots” to her fans for free. If you didn’t get a chance to download the remix you can still snag the acoustic version for free here.
Tomorrow (4/12) at 3PM PST/6PM EST Lights will be on her Ustream channel to take fan questions via Twitter. This is your chance to ask any pressing, or maybe not so pressing, question. Her Facebook Page is already buzzing about the talk. Neil Werner left a humorous comment on her status, “I asked to marry me, I wonder if I’d get a reply. (sic) LOL.” Other fans were just excited and ramping up for the webcast.
To watch the Q&A go to http://www.ustream.tv/channel/lights.
We love Lights here at the Dead Hub and we really want everyone in on the new Light’s song. Well it’s not super brand new, but the remix is! For a limited time you can go onto Lights’s website and enter your email to receive the remix of “My Boots” for free plus you’ll be able to watch an exclusive video.
You only have until the 28th of March so start cracking!
If you haven’t done so already, take a gander at the Original Lithograph designed by Lights. She released the lithograph “Brett Says Stay” on 2/14, yes, Valentine’s Day. You can check the litho design here, but alas they are sold out.
Today Lights released an original lithograph she created just in time for Valentine’s Day. She titled it “Brett Says Stay Lithograph” and the lithograph is 20″ x 39″ hi-definition litho on heavy matte paper stock. For more information on the lithograph click here.
Lights on her creation:
“I’ve always been inspired by the copious amounts of e
motion that can be captured in one simple comic book panel. It seems like the most extreme drama can be found in vintage romance comics from the ’50s-’70s. I’ve been periodically collecting these kinds of comics for quite some time. In fact, this has become kind of a game for me – cracking a comic book open, placing a finger on a random page, finding some wildly dramatic moment, then inventing an intricate scenario that may have led the subjects to find themselves in that fateful still-frame. I’ve been painting moments like these for almost six years now. Since I’m extremely bad at buying gifts for people (is anyone really good at that?) I’ve discovered that creating paintings for those friends and loved ones can be really special. In a way these paintings are like a Rorschach test, people see what they want to see in them.”
– The painting is the first of four in a series.
– Each lithograph print is hand numbered and signed by LIGHTS.
– There are only 400 copies available worldwide.
– When they’re gone they’re gone.
An orginal painting created by LIGHTS will be on sale to the public on February 14th. Entitled, “Brett Says Stay,” a new piece of this comic book inspired lithograph is revealed each day on the website, IAMLIGHTS.com. The full image will be revealed on the day it is available for purchasing.
Here’s whatLIGHTS had to say about her creation:
“I’ve always been inspired by the copious amounts of emotion that can be captured in one simple comic book panel. It seems like the most extreme drama can be found in vintage romance comics from the ’50s-’70s. I’ve been periodically collecting these kinds of comics for quite some time. “

Aragon Ballroom – Chicago, IL
April 30, 2010
Second to take the stage at last Friday night’s “Battle of the Bands” was LIGHTS. Also known as Canadian songstress Valerie Poxleitner, LIGHTS has become a force to reckon with in the electro-synthpop, new wave world of modern music. This girl is yet another wildly talented singer/songwriter who was included in the lineup for the evening, sandwiched between Paper Route and Owl City. LIGHTS recreated many of the recorded versions of her songs for the live show, which brilliantly displayed the full belting potential of her normally soft and airy vocal chops.
