The Fortnightly: October 3rd – October 16th
In this edition of The Fortnightly, Julie spotlights the upcoming St. Vincent show. Check out the rest of our collective picks at the bottom:
St. Vincent @ Old Rock House, Thursday, October 6th, 2011:
My favorite interview with Annie Clark is from this past January, in which she states, “Tea is for pussies.” 2007′s Marry Me captivates, 2009′s Actor amuses, but her new album, Strange Mercy is definitely a record made by the Texas gal who said, “I dabbled with vegetarianism in college but I mean, who didn’t?” It’s a precision demolition of sparkling lyrics and glitchy guitar noise. And a theramin solo, you guys.
LISTEN: Northern Lights.
Thursday night at Old Rock House, St. Vincent returns to St. Louis with her enigmatic facial expressions, her achingly beautiful voice, and her fricking rad guitar skills. Show up for this one, unless you like regretting things forever.
