BANKS & STEELZ + ZIPPER CLUB @ THE EL REY THEATRE
Banks & Steelz may have thought they escaped the heat at Coachella, but it was sure steamy inside the El Rey Theatre as Interpol and Wu-Tang Clan fans came together to go ballistic as Paul Banks and RZA played a sweet set of songs from their album Anything But Words .
During their debut show back in July, the songs were brand new. But this time around, fans were familiar with the lyrics and tried to rap along with RZA as best they could. It just didn’t happen.
Lots of shrilled screams from females (and a male) professed their love for Banks. RZA took it to another level when he sprayed us with champagne and then poured shots of vodka for lucky ones in the front row.
It will be another scorcher at Coachella this weekend for B&S. They play Saturday, Outdoor Stage at 3:20.
Technical difficulties made it difficult for the Zipper Club to reach the sound they were striving for. This was unfortunate as most in the crowd had never had the chance to hear them live. Hopefully, they will be back in LA soon. They are on the Coachella lineup, Friday at 1:00 in the Mojave.
