BANKS | HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM

by BJ Panda Bear

Last night Banks played a sold out show at her hometown venue the Hollywood Palladium. The Fall tour was a comeback from a recent vocal rest that had taken the songbird offstage in recent weeks. In between tracks of her dynamic performance Banks disappeared and reemerged around the stage to a background of contemporary dancers held together in stew of shadows, smoke, and strobe lights. The dramatic lighting was predominantly soaked in blues, reds, purples, and pitch dark. She shared a poem with the audience called Ode to the Gray Zone and continued with hits like “Waiting Game” “Underdog” “Gemini Feed” “Fuck with Myself” “Stroke”
