John Vanderslice @ Mercury Lounge

Srsly, Vanderslice = Dance Party. If you ever doubted it in the past, doubt no more. I also now have a stronger memory of why Mercury Lounge rules. The sound was pretty much perfect. And watching John play guitar is fun. He was my Guitar Hero for the night." [vert's livejournal]
St. Vincent @ Mercury Lounge
By the way, St. Vincent (Annie Clark of Polyphonic Spree fame) is my new obsession. I can’t remember the last time I fell so hard for a musician that I had never even heard of before. She sings, plays guitar, bass, piano, synth, and does all this cool programming stuff. She’s charming and delightful and a seriously skilled and interesting guitarist. She was like…I don’t even want to insult her by comparing her to other female singer/songwriter types. Do yourself a favor and check out her myspace page or better yet see her live cause I don’t think she’ll be playing tiny venues for much longer. Look for her album coming out soon on Beggars Banquet.

Vanderslice = Dance Party? That's ridiculous. It was a fun night but if this person thinks that the show was a dance party, then....damn that's just stupid hyperbole.

No... I think the person is referring to the "dance party" (ie Nas & KRS-1 music) that occurred after the show.

BTW.. ST VINCENT RULES!!!!! She was amazing (just like at the Midlake show a couple months ago).

enjoyed the JV shows immensely - thanks to BV for helping put them together and get the word out. sorry that JV doesn't get more love as he deserves it. but i'm glad i don't have to pay for some big venue to see him. can't wait for the new album. the song "white dove" rocks.

Man, JV and St. V are rolling into my town in less than a week, and I'm excited. Good to hear that Ms. Clark will be playing all kinds of instruments during her set. I. Am. Excited.
