St. Vicent Kills It at ACL 2014. Amazingly fun performance: Annie shreds on multiple guitars, climbs scaffolding and commandeers the audience's clothes (and a crutch) all in stiletto heels..
St.Vincent aka Guitar Goddess Annie Clark and her band pull off a perfect performance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival and thankfully you can view the entire event and Belle and Sebastian's set as well below. When I listen to St.Vincent I feel like I have time traveled into the future. Her songs combine beauty and true rock prowess with guitar lines are like a transcendent blendo mix of space rock, new wave electronica and classic rock combined with performance art. She redefines music and it is hard put her sound into a well defined box. I would call it sci-fi spaghetti western new wave punk at this moment and maybe something else tomorrow. Amazingly fun performance: Annie shreds on multiple guitars, climbs scaffolding and commandeers the audience's clothes and a crutch all in stiletto heels.
