Amanda Black The MetroAmanda Blank is awesome! Many are familiar with Amanda as the fiery vixen appearing alongside crowd and critical darlings Spankrock, and as part of the Philly-based pop group Sweatheart. Enlisting the help of uber-produers Diplo, Switch and XXXChange, Amanda Blank has made a record that is light years ahead of what anyone could’ve expected based on her guest appearances thus far. Balancing a razor-sharp wit & vocal dexterity with an unmatched stage presence, this is a woman to watch. Her record includes other such as Spank Rock, Santigold, Lykke Li and the Cool Kids.

Amanda Black The MetroAmanda came to Chicago Friday night (November 20) and had everyone at the Metro rocking out to her live and eccentric sounds. I love her style, her dancing and her energy. The girl is just plain awesome! She is out of the ordinary and extremely talented.

Many people have good albums but can’t deliver a good show, yet hands down Amanda Blank delivered! She is so exhilarating live, she dances and gets the audience hyped up and even shows some skin. She can sing, rap, and write and did I mention she can dance? She humps quite a lot, but that’s cool we all seemed to enjoy it, well, I did.

I didn’t catch all the songs she preformed from her set, but she did play “Gimmie What You Got”, “A Love Song”, “DJ”, “Might like You Better” and “Make it Take it” She didn’t give a full show because she was opening for Peaches, thus, it was a really short set. We only had a taste of her on Friday night and I think she definitely made the entire audience crave more of her.
If you don’t know who Amanda Blank is… I suggest you look her up. You are missing out on life! I give the show 4 stars, only complaint being it was too short.
