Having previously performed in the Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens's touring band, multi-instrumentalist St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark, grandly stepped into the spotlight last July with her acclaimed debut, Marry Me. With wit in her pen and sweetly hushed soprano vocals on top of layered and challenging arrangements, this wide-eyed songstress manages to curl the lips in nearly every song. Supporting St. Vincent are California-based quartet Foreign Born, recently signed to indie label Dim Mak. Shine up your dark-rimmed specs and don your thrift-store sweaters, as this show is primed to boost your Current listening cred. With Foreign Born. All ages.
