Bjork at The Fabulous Fox Theatre

There's no denying that Bjork's fans absolutely adore her.

I attended her performance at The Fox last night and I left with the overwhelming feeling that despite chatter about the music industry crashing all around us, there are certain performers that are impacting their fans while still making ends meet.

In typical Bjork fashion, the show was a visual buffet complete with oversized banners of woodland creatures, flat-screens visualizing the electronic antics taking place on stage, flames and lasers, an all-girl children's choir and horn section, confetti falling from the rafters, and Bjork in a flowing pink and white dress.

All visuals aside, the girl can sing her ass off and she looks like she's having the time of her life doing it (which is probably why there wasn't an empty seat in the house). Her beat-heavy, slightly dissonant style still remains artfully unique, setting her apart from most of the cookie-cutter bands infiltrating the music scene.

Your last chance to catch Bjork in The States on this tour is Monday, September 24th at Madison Square Garden in New York.
