I loved seeing St Vincent in Glasgow last time, and with no Scottish date announced I took the plunge and splashed out on a trip to Manchester. So glad I did! Annie Clark is one special artist. The new album ‘St. Vincent’ is an evolution from ‘Strange Mercy’ and her approach to the show was much more polished and ‘choreographed’ than last time.
Great songs, great singing, great guitaring joined with some new great moves kept us anticipating every musical and theatrical twist and turn. A magnificent setting too in such an impressive building, but the sound quality was a very disappointing, mainly Annie’s guitar which was not clear and often not loud enough! At least 1 mark off for bad sound.
A great show though and I liked this a lot, but I actually preferred the more raw, sweaty performance in Glasgow 2011 with storming guitar, crowd going wild and Annie crowdsurfing! And by the way … Just the week before this gig, a Glasgow date was announced on a later part of the tour in May. Sod’s law! So I’ll go to both then!
