Not much is known about mysterious singer Olivia de la Garza. The Boca Raton resident doesn't have a website, and a video search yields a giant goose egg. The few pictures that exist on the interwebs suggest she could be a seductive bombshell from a Bond movie. She purportedly has an angelic voice, having sung lead in the 13-piece Miami Dolphins Voices, the NFL's only a cappella group. But to check out her concert at 8 p.m. Saturday at Arts Garage, sight unseen and sound unheard, is to trust the venue's judgment in showcasing talent from around the world and around the corner -- and so far, it hasn't failed. De la Garza has performed at three Urban Underground shows at Arts Garage, and this time she'll premiere a song cycle called "Songs of Love and Lust," along with jazz classics, accompanied by a three-piece band of topnotch local talent. Tickets cost $15 to $25 in advance, with an additional $5 if purchased at the door. Arts Garage is located at 180 NE First St. in Delray Beach. Call 561-450-6357, or visit artsgarage.org.
