Pianist Simone Dinnerstein's 2007 recording of Bach's "Goldberg Variations" became an unlikely hit, topping the Billboard classical charts, reaching No. 3 on the Amazon charts, and for a time, leading iTunes in downloads. This summer she releases her follow-up CD, "The Berlin Concert," and tonight she performs at Le Poisson Rouge, the new concert venue in Greenwich Village. She performs live for us today in the studio.

Haven't concerts always been about "Hey, look at me, look at how cool I am because I was at this concert?" Isn't that why tour shirts were invented?

You know how people traditionally used to hold up lighters and sway them back and forth during a band's performance of a slow ballad? Well, the lighter has been replaced by the lit-up cell phone screen at many concerts. The image is really cool and allows everyone to get involved -- after all, how many non-smokers carry around lighters?
