Tank and The Bangas Staff Pick

When: Thu., June 13, 8 p.m. 2019
Price: $20-$25
Why can’t we have “Nice Things”? Well, thanks to funk-soul ensemble Tank and the Bangas, we totally can. The New Orleans-based ensemble caught a wave when they won NPR’s 2017 Tiny Desk contest, which enabled the band to record to its sophomore release, 2019’s Green Balloon. The record’s lead single “Nice Things” finds Tarriona “Tank” Ball making the case as to why a lover should reward her with all things Gucci, which is then followed by the playfully blunt “Smoke.Netflix.Chill” — an embodiment of the feel-good spectrum Tank and the Bangas represent. New Orleans-based rapper Alfred Banks is also on the bill.
