Rihanna may have commanded us to all shine bright like a diamond but surely she forgot the brightest diamond of all. Shara Nova leads My Brightest Diamond, an untouchable chamber rock, and orchestral baroque pop project. It’s been a hot minute since My Brightest Diamond released a record (2014) but Nova’s dropping The Twilight Tone next year and we can’t help but assume that it will be worth the wait. Hailing from all over the damn place, Nova actually called Ypsilanti home for quite some time… so, can we please keep her?
My Brightest Diamond will perform with support from Mic Write Saturday, Dec. 16 at 8 p.m. at El Club; 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-279-7382; elclubdetroit.com; tickets are $15 in advance, $18 day of show.
