Without a doubt, St. Vincent’s solo performance at Largo, this past May, stands as my favorite show thus far in 2007. Certainly high praise when you consider it was just Vincent (Annie Clark), her guitar, a kick drum, and piano.
That modest combination proved to be amazing — prompting us to say this the day after: “In a word, her performance was breathtaking. Deftly moving from confessional singer-songwriter fare on the piano, to displaying avante-guard, Zappa-esque chops on the guitar, St. Vincent (Annie Clark) had the audience captivated from the moment she took the stage.”
