Marina and the Diamonds barreled through the Bay Area last week, this time with an LED-heavy production and three-act performance to Oakland’s Fox Theater for two shows. While the pretty lights distracted from the performance at times, Marina Diamonds still brings more emotion and smarts to the table than most of her contemporaries. Just as in May at the Warfield, Christine and the Queens opened and no doubt surprised many who have not yet heard her music. I spoke to Christine’s Heloise Letissier before the show and will share a Q&A soon enough.
I’ve spoken to Marina numerous times, including two weeks ago. Read that interview and others, and see pics and watch videos, here.
I’ve also spoken to Heloise before, and you can read the interviews, and see older photos and videos, here.
