Artist Review: K.Flay

The intense performance of a passionate entertainer

by Chance Eller / Garnet & Black

K.Flay puts on one hell of a show. 

Between the intensity of her stage presence and the brutal rawness of her live production, one can’t help but be entranced by the experience. The stark, angular backdrop of the stage sets the tone for a show that takes the audience through an audio-visual journey, comparable to a bombastic fireworks show. Her ability to control the energy of the crowd is near unmatched; every single word was reciprocated as if the audience themselves were the ones performing. 

Though the Fillmore is a relatively small venue, that night, she made it feel like an arena. This is due to her catalog of high-energy, alt-pop jams that command the attention of the crowd. She carries this momentum throughout the entire show with zero fatigue, showcasing the power of a truly passionate performer with an evident desire to entertain. 

If at all possible, catching a K.Flay show is an absolute necessity.
