Photo Gallery: FKA Twigs at The Riviera Theatre

| November 18, 2019

Tahliah Debrett Barnett continues to blur the lines of what pop music can mean. Recording and performing under the moniker FKA twigs, Barnett is seamlessly merging performance art, dance and high concept approach with mainstream appeal. Nowhere was this more apparent than during her recent sold-out appearance at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre. She twirled, tap-danced, vogued, sang and purred her way through an intelligent and forward-looking evening. And even though her second record Magdalene had only been released a week prior, an audience that seemed to span every possible classification of gender and social strata watched every gauzy twirl and listened to every syllable with rapt attention and awe.
