SZA dropped Ctrl, her debut album, via Top Dawg Entertainment/RCA Records last year, and she undertook her first headlining tour, which finally made it to The Fillmore Silver Spring for a sold-out show on Monday. Chris Castillo was there to photograph the action.
In concert, the alt-R&B singer-songwriter, born Solána Imani Rowe, drew from her 14-track album to perform songs like “Supermodel,” “Anything,” and “Broken Clocks.” You may have seen SZA sing “Broken Clocks” at the Grammy Awards on Jan. 28.
The crowd at The Fillmore were particularly appreciative as SZA made up the date after rescheduling it from August 2017 due to health problems. SZA will next perform locally as part of the Top Dawg Entertainment: The Championship Tour in a lineup that includes Kendrick Lamar! See them at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia on Friday, June 1. Buy your tickets online.
