Happy Birthday To Lindsey Yung!

Lindsey YungI want to wish a Happy Birthday to the multi-talented Lindsey Yung, a friend I haven't met yet!

On Thursday night, October 6, however, I will meet Lindsey when she appears at 'Canes in Mission Beach on a bill with Saba and Trevor Davis. The show starts at 8 p.m. and there will be a $6 cover.

I first became aware of Lindsey's abilities as a photographer earlier this year, when I spotted a small ad she ran for a while in the Reader for Lindsey Yung Photography.

When I visited her online gallery, I saw some excellent work by Lindsey. I also found a link to some great photos of Lindsey by a photographer named Paul Yung, who I learned later is Lindsey's father. The pictures here are his shots.

In early August I was looking at Jane Lui's groups of friends on MySpace when whose picture should I spot but Lindsey Yung! I e-mailed Lindsey and she e-mailed me back.

LINDSEY YUNG: FusionI learned that she sings too! Lindsey invited me to attend a release party for her new CD "Fusion" at Lestat's back on September 11th. I had planned to go, but my mother had a pacemaker installed on the 9th and ended up in the hospital with complications, so I didn't make it to see Lindsey. I'm looking forward to changing that this Thursday night, though!

If you haven't heard Lindsey sing, click on the picture of "Fusion" to hear some samples of her songs. Then come to 'Canes and see her in person!
