BANKS live on The Wiltern, LA

Here is another concert review from me... 2 nights ago I went to see Jillian Rose Banks aka @hernameisbanks, or known as BANKS by her followers. I have just recently discovered her through Instagram then Spotify, and didn't know that one of my friend also loves her. It's just a coincidence knowing that she would have her concert coming up in Los Angeles, so I was super excited and bought the ticket last minute. Didn't think that I would score a GA FLOOR access to her show even though I bought it last minute.
As for my personal opinion, her music is dark, but not as dark as Lorde's. Her music has more upbeat beats, which I love and totally enjoy listening to along with the deep meaning to every lyrics on her songs.
We had to wait a while till she showed up, but the wait was worth it when she came up and performed on the stage! Definitely recommend everyone who loves alternative pop/ dark R&B music to listen to hers and even see her in person or performing live!
I think what makes me like her even more is because "her rhapsodic voice possesses a frail vulnerability" aspect to every words she's singing; as agreed by Billboard. 









Sorry for the low resolution pics because I took it with my iPhone 5 in a very dark room and a heavy lighting on the stage. Well if it makes you any better to know her, here she is...


Here are some of the videos that I took: 
Of course, my fave of them all is when she performed my fave song in her album: "Begging For Thread."

On The Run Tour ; J+B


I had the best night at On The Run Tour with Jay Z and Beyonce performing on stage together at last!  Even though it was raining, Jay Z and Beyonce didn't stop performing, we all had fun. Fans were having fun dancing around and singing along to all their famous hits. Their duet performances were steamy and no question asked about the Queen B, herself. When she's on stage, it's gonna be wild and awesome!  Didn't think that Jay Z would also perform his famous tracks from his album; "Tom Ford," F*ck With Me, You Know I got It," and "N*ggas in Paris." Surely, it was a night to remember... When they're having another show next time, I would totally go again to watch these power couple hamming the stage! Bow down b*tches!


















They ended up the show romantically and sweetly by having all the fans turned on their flashes on the phones and sang along to "Forever Young" and "Halo," with a video of J&B playing around with little Blue Ivy on the background screen...

Sorry for not posting videos here, since it's a bit hard and it is also a complex process to reformat it from camera to a blogspot format. But, feel free to follow my instagram @lauraclayderman for videos of "Crazy in Love," "N*ggas in Paris," and more to come :)

One Republic and The Script Live at Hollywood Bowl, CA

Haven't posted for a while.. If you know my Instagram and Facebook's page, you'll know why.. I just recently graduated from CSUF with a B.A. in Communications- Public Relations and minor in Human Communication. Maybe I'll post some pics in another post.

Last night, I just went to another concert... If you have been following me or my posts, you know that I love going to concerts a lot! :) Especially I won't miss my-all-time favorite bands since high school, the one and only, One Republic and The Script! Yes, they were performing on stage in 1 night together at Hollywood Bowl, CA. It was amazing as usual; they were interacting with the audience by running around the bowl, raising their prideful flag (The Scripts are from Dublin), and last but not least, Ryan Tedder (the lead singer from One Republic) covered hit songs like "I'm so fancy" by Iggy and "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong. On top of that, there was a surprise appearance of Gavin DeGraw singing along on stage! It wasn't about the custom or the dancer, it was about the lyrics, the beats, and the songs they sing... If you're a fan, you know what I'm talking about :)
