Zola Jesus at Crescent Ballroom

1 of 48
Nika Rosa Danilova, better known to her fans as Zola Jesus, walked onstage Friday night at Crescent Ballroom and slowly raised her arms in a style reminiscent of the savior as depicted in the Catholic faith. The soothing blue stage lights turned a deep crimson as she danced wildly to the haunting loop of her vocals from the opening title track of her latest album Taiga. She shook her head back and forth like some sort of hip-hop punk princess as the bling she wore on her arms and fingers reflected in the eyes of a rapturous audience.
