Amanda Blank has been on the scene for the past few years but I’ve mostly taken note of her style more than for her sound. Well, tonight I had a rude awakening and realized I should have been paying less attention to her good taste in clothing and manicures and more attention to what she had to say.
Amanda was a great choice to open for Santigold – both ladies hail from Philly – and Amanda’s raw energy was just what the crowd needed to get ready for Santigold. She took to the stage, with just a DJ, but she was able to fill the space with her voice and her moves.
I’m glad I had the chance to finally see Amanda perform, and I know it won’t be the last. I’ll be waiting for her summer release and something tells me she may have a song of the summer.
Check out the clip below for a bit of her performance…
