Antony and the Johnsons...

After I finished unpacking, I headed over to BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) to see Antony and the Johnsons perform with the Brooklyn Philharmonic. Firstly, what a beautiful venue! The concert was held in the Howard Gilman Opera House. It was such a treat to see the show there.

It was truly haunting and emotive. Antony has a power over projecting pure heartbreak with his voice and his words. Accompanied with members of the Johnsons and the Brooklyn Philharmonic, it was utterly breath-taking.

My favorite song performed was a cover of a Beyonce song, Crazy In Love. It took on a wholly different and unique feel divorced from its origins and made anew.
