What, you don’t know who Bridgit Mendler is? She plays Teddy on Disney’s Good Luck Charlie and Olivia in Lemonade Mouth, Appoline in Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2. You know, the voice of Becca Kingston in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel.
Fine, we have no idea who she is either. But last year she released a debut album called, appropriately enough, Hello My Name Is . . ., which went platinum with the tweens. We haven’t heard any of the songs, but she cites Bob Dylan and Florence + the Machine as influences, and is seen holding in keytar in some of her concert photos, so go figure.
[Editor’s note: Some of us on the staff are familiar with Mendler’s hit “Ready or Not,” thanks to its insidious musical-earworm-style pop catchiness. Seriously, it’s stuck in our head, again, now.]
Bridgit Mendler will play the Palace Theatre (19 Clinton Ave., Albany) on Tuesday (Aug. 27) at 8 PM. Tickets are $20-$45. Call 465-3334 for more info.
