Who I Am In Love With This Week - Annie Clark

Written by: Brandon Fisher

Annie

Last night I was in DC at the 9:30 club to see Annie Clark’s solo project St. Vincent and as a result here are the pros and cons of loving Annie Clark:

Pros

She is a porcelain spunky beauty that writes incredible music.

She plays guitar the way I play guitar hero. It looks like you’re doing a lunge and a sit up at the same time. Maybe that’s why she’s in such great shape.

She triggers her guitar pedals while wearing high heels.

She sprinkles profanity in place of established lyrics to win the crowd during the live show.

Cons

Her light show is a seizure inducing punch in the face. I knew I had to divert my eyes from her radiance, but I assumed at some point I would stop rolling on the floor long enough to snap a photo. I was worried about not bringing ear plugs. I should have been worried about not bringing sun glasses.  

When rocking out, she pummels her guitar and whammy bar. This could be a serious concern in the bedroom (as could be the high heels.)

During the encore she swam her guitar through the hands of the crowd and let an audience member have it. Then a stage hand/roadie came to reclaim it. That’s like winning a Porsche and crashing it on the way out of the parking lot.  

She chose not to pull me on stage or make out with me after the show. For shame.

St Vincent's 3rd album Strange Mercy came out on 4AD on September 13th, 2011.
