The St. Vincent Australian Tour 2014 has expanded.
Following on from being announced as part of the Vivid LIVE 2014 lineup, St. Vincent confirmed an additional sideshow in Melbourne this May but a second show has been added due to overwhelming demand.
Following tickets to St. Vincent’s special headline show at the Howler art-warehouse in Melbourne selling out, a repeat performance has been announced for Friday 23rd May. Tickets on sale now.
After her first cardboard guitar, teen years on tour, three incredible albums and the celebrated recent Love This Giant collaboration with David Byrne; guitar player, singer and songwriter Annie Clark aka St. Vincent returns with her fourth album, the self-titled St. Vincent.
“A bizarre, rambunctious record that will bring out the lunatic within you,” as our Tone Deaf reviewer called it, the album finds St. Vincent at her most assured and gripping as she meshes distorted, aggressive electric guitars and bold vocal and synthesizer arrangements on top of a relentless rhythm section.
Yielding choir-song harmonies and orchestral flourishes with high-wire solos and stage dives, St. Vincent’s whimsical journey took an addictive new turn with her chart-breakthrough, Strange Mercy (2008).
Now guiding hip-hop inspired rhythms through a fierce array of live electronics and choreographed heroics, the 31-year-old has made ‘a party record you could play at a funeral’ – liberated by Ambien-induced dreams, snake-evading desert walks, and the rhythmic muscle of the Dap-Kings and Midlake.
These shows – like the new album – will be as daring, dangerous and delightful as only St. Vincent can be and they go on sale this week. Details below.
