Video: St. Vincent performs, talks with The National at the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Festival prior to tonight’s hometown Tulsa show
Tulsa-born singer/songwriter/guitarist St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, is featured today in Pitchfork.tv’s latest episode of its video series “+1.”
The episode was filmed earlier this month at the Brooklyn Academy of Music during the new Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival, which was programmed by beloved local indie rockers The National. The video features an chat between St. Vincent The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, plus snippets of her festival performance, including her explosive, crowd-surfing rendition of her latest single, “Krokodil,” which she released on Record Store Day.
St. Vincent returns to her native Oklahoma to play a hometown show at 8 tonight at historic Cain’s Ballroom, 423 N Main. And here’s what she has to say in the interview that should have Oklahoma fans amped up to see in concert:
“As we’ve been playing these songs live and really kind of developing the show, I kind of don’t even pay that much attention to the space anymore,” she tells the Dessner twins in the video. “I just try to make like each show kind of stand out and be kind of wilder than the one before.”
Considering the crowd-surfing mood she’s been in this spring, get ready, Tulsa.
