ST. VINCENT, APRIL 5, 2014, RIVIERA THEATRE in CHICAGO

You like guitar playing? Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) delivers in this Best of 2014 show. You like choreography? St. Vincent and her three-piece band also delivers. A stage production with seizure-inducing lighting? Absolutely. The show was subtle, yet had spectacle. The minimalistic design was stunning, and the fact the St. Vincent can play her blues-infused rock licks and solos so effortlessly is astounding. Oh, and she also has songs! St. Vincent’s self-titled release was stellar. Hard to believe her tour exceeded it in excellence.
