Alt-pop darling Banks made her long-awaited return to the Bay Area last week at The Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco. The California native is currently on her III tour, supporting her aptly titled third album. The singer was forced to cancel the original tour date due to illness, so both audience and artist were buzzing throughout the night.
Banks performed with two dancers during moody, heavily choreographed set. While fog swirled around the stage, Banks and her dancers moved in graceful, yet still slightly disjointed and eerie movements. And this mesmerizingly haunting style matched Banks well. Her voice commanded the room from the moment the lights rose on her silhouetted form. Powerful,
Banks is an artist with a particularly enthusiastic following, and this show was no different. The auditorium echoed with her lyrics with each song. Fans literally jumped with joy to some of her most popular releases. In fact, during “Fuck With Myself” it was difficult to find Banks’s voice within the mass of fans yelling along. Suffice it to say Banks loves the city by the bay, and they certainly love her back.
