“Imagine if Banoffee played with Empress Of,” my roommate joked with me last summer. I had just told him that Empress Of was coming to the Echo, and around that time I had been gushing about Banoffee’s masterful second EP, Do I Make You Nervous? It clearly amused him to tease me about two of my favorite artists actually coming together at the same show. “I’d die,” I replied, thinking that this combination of two artists at different points in their careers and across continents would be pretty unlikely. And though I did nearly have a heart attack when I saw that they would be performing together for Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days in LA, I am still very much alive. I have yet to shake off the excitement from their show at Club Bahia this past Monday night.
I couldn’t resist.
