Bless Your iPod With Some Live St. Vincent
Whilst doing a little MP3 blog trolling over the weekend, we stumbled across a pleasant surprise: The night after Unfair Park fave St. Vincent joined the likes of Peter and the Wolf, Doug Burr, Tame...Tame and Quiet and many other notables at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, music blog Lullabyes posted the entirety of Annie Clark's show.
And while the whole set's worth downloading, there are some highlights you oughta grab ASAP: Clark's covers of Jackson Browne ("These Days") and the Beatles ('Dig a Pony") and, from her solo debut, "Your Lips Are Red" (and, like, wow) and "Now. Now." And, fine, the rest of it -- save for, oh, the "tech issues," during which she threatens nothing but Bob Seeger covers and six performances of Don McLean's "American Pie." Also, thanks to Gorilla vs. Bear, we were tipped off to the wonderful cover of Clark's "Marry Me," as performed by in Boston last month by Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls. It's after the jump. --Robert Wilonsky
