OFF TO THE RACES

After months of being called unkind names, such as a YouTube flash in the pan, a PR product, and Everything That Is Wrong With Music, Lana Del Rey finally released Born to Die, the much anticipated—or at least much talked about—follow-up to viral hits “Video Games” and “Blue Jeans,” moving off the Internet and up the Billboard albums chart. And though none of the album’s 15 songs reached the spellbinding heights of those two singles, it surrounded them with a group of tunes that develop the Del Rey character and sound in a handful of interesting ways, whether through Lolita Americana or British trip-hop. Tonight, she begins a three-night run of shows at Irving Plaza with “I’ma Read” rapper Zebra Katz warming up the crowd.
Thu., June 7, 8 p.m., 2012
