Saturday, November 21st Lear Lynn will be at the Castle Theatre giving Bloomington a night full of some of the most emotion music written recently. In an article with Rolling Stone Lera said one of the most important things she learned from doing True Detective was that people still react emotionally to long drawn out music that is not overly complicated and it actually brings out emotions that present music has brought out in a while. These are the emotions she hopes to bring out in people while she performs.
