Lead singer Shara Worden of indie rock band My Brightest Diamond reminds me of that blue diva lady from The Fifth Element. Her voice is extremely powerful and sends shivers down spines, but she’s not playing opera halls on spaceships yet. Celebrating their newest remix album, Shark Remixes, My Brightest Diamond will be returning to NYC when they play Bowery Ballroom on Jan. 22. Copies of the album will be available at the show before the Jan. 26 release date. Ages 18 and up. mybrightestdiamond.com.
