Allie X Expressed Her Love To The LGBTQ+ Crowd At LA! Pride REVIEW + PHOTOS: Allie X @ LA! PRIDE 6/10/18
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… Because CeCe Peniston’s performance started late, I was worried that I would miss too much of Allie X’s 30 minutes performance to be able to truly get a sense of her music and style. Luckily, after running across the festival grounds with 35+ pounds of gear strapped to my back, I only missed the first 10 minutes of her performance.
There’s an incredibly dramatic flare that Allie X possesses; a flare that perfectly suits her futuristic take on electronic-pop. With her hair dressed up in a big bouffante, and obscuring her face throughout the performance with either a clown like veil or large sunglasses, she carried with her a mysterious air onstage.
The mysterious cloak, however, was removed when she spoke directly to the audience, specifically thanking the LGBTQ+ community for their unwavering support of the years. It was a truly tender moment of personal appreciation which humanized this performer in my eyes.
Having written hits for Troye Sivan, Allie X’s songwriting credentials are pretty well established. Her own music is equally infectious. Her music is replete with catchy hooks that are easy to sing along with; and the passion that she performs with- with its dramatic flare- is a joy to watch manifest on stage. In my humble opinion, Allie X is one prominent synch placement- which will lead to a demand at terrestrial radio- from making a real slash on the music landscape …”
