There’s simply no stoping the career of Annie Clark, who has become a true rockstar as St. Vincent. With last year’s self-titled release, she finally broke out in a way that had been long coming, but still felt oh so right.
Her set at Boston Calling was one of the highlights of the festival, which saw her bring out all the stops. Her band seems to get tighter and tighter ever time I see them, absolutely nailing all of the songs off of St. Vincent and the rest of the albums of her ever growing career.
She brought out her corographed moves, poses, and affecting stares, and even found her way into the audience by riding on the back of a helpful security guard. There’s not much that St. Vincent can’t do at this point, except continue her ascent to rock superstardom.
St. Vincent Setlist:
1. Birth in Reverse
6. Digital Witness
7. Bring Me Your Loves
8. Huey Newton
10. Your Lips Are Red
