Tank and the Bangas is touring in support of their major-label debut The Green Balloon. The band’s led by gospel-trained singer/songwriter/slam poet Tarriona “Tank” Ball—a voice so powerful and animated, you’d think she’s a real life cartoon character. The New Orleans five-piece (plus the sometimes-present back-up vocals of Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph) blasts a rich and somewhat oddball blend of soul, funk, hip-hop, rock, and jazz. There’s nothing quite like seeing Tank and the Bangas live, which usually includes some spoken word. Having played some truly stunning sets at Pickathon and Roseland Theater in the past couple years, it’ll be a nice change to see them in the cozy, but still aesthetically pleasing confines of the Crystal Ballroom. Also on the bill is raspy-voiced singer/songwriter/poet Adia Victoria, who performs an original mélange of gothic blues, country, and rock that’s simply enchanting. Miss this show at your own peril. by Jenni Moore
