St. Vincent (2014 Festival)
New York, NY
St. Vincent is well along her transition from a bit of an art pop oddity to a full-blown pop star. With distinctive guitar playing, highly complex arrangements and an uncanny ability to dissect the entire history of pop music and put it back together in the way it probably always should have been, not to mention a resume including dream-collaborations with David Byrne and Swans, the multi-instrumentalist Annie Erin Clark may in fact be the artist to make a 21st century alternate reality in which good music dominates the airwaves a little less science fiction.
"St. Vincent showcases Annie Clark as a fiercely accomplished musician, a relentlessly original artist, and now, an innovator of pop.” - DIY Magazine
