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."
