Azealia Banks kicked-off her Mermaid Ball 2012 in New York City, and now the young MC is bringing the show to Los Angeles. Banks’ and her secret special guests, will roll into the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, Calif. Saturday, July 14.
The Harlem native made her hometown debut via a sold-out show at the Bowery Ballroom, and brought along four opening acts, floating sea creatures, and a mermaid costumer contest. “Banks entered her ball as any semi-aquatic celebutante would: flanked on either side by her girls, and wearing nothing but seashells, jewels, some well-placed pasties and her milky, mischievous smile. Banks’ penchant for foul-mouthed fun and sticky hooks are unstoppable: during her rising B-side ‘Liquorice,’ fans eagerly belted the harmonious bridge without her help,” Rolling Stone said, of the show.
Banks is set to release her Fantasea mixtape on July 11, while her debut Broke with Expensive Taste debut is due out this fall.
