Zola Jesus

Zola Jesus was an extraterrestrial apparition who looked like she could start hovering Linda Blair-style at any moment. “Swords,” the glitchy overture to Zola’s latest album, Conatus, ushered the four-piece band onstage through fog and a wall of artificial blue starlight, Zola positioned front and center in a flowing white gown. She didn’t stay put for long. Bolstered by synth, drums and electric violinist Christiana Key (whom audience members praised by name more than once throughout the night), Zola beautifully belted out “Avalanche,” “Shivers” and most of the tracks from Conatus while floating, hopping and jazzercising across the smoky stage. After a hot hour Zola was already gone and back for the encore, stationed behind a double-decker Akai keyboard while Key’s violin groaned along to the somber ballad “Skin.” -[CMJ]

Zola Jesus lead the charge on an all-star cast at Webster Hall on 2/18. Liturgy (who is now down to a duo and a MacBook Pro) and Talk Normal opened the show. Pictures adorn this post.

Zola Jesus plays Lincoln Hall in Chicago tonight and her full slate of tour dates (including Sasquatch) are below. The dates ALSO include an appearance at SXSW as part of the Sacred Bones Showcase on 3/14 at Elysium with Amen Dunes, Led Er Est, The Men, Psychic Ills, and Wymond Miles.
