St. Vincent at Terminal 5 in February (more by Amanda Hatfield)
St. Vincent

This month, the CBS Live on Letterman concert series will be bringing in St. Vincent for a web-broadcasted live performance following her taping on the show on July 16. (The webcast series' July lineup will also showcase David Gray on July 30.) This is one of many notable dates that St. Vincent coming up as she continues to tour in support of this year's St. Vincent, including a free Celebrate Brooklyn set on August 9, a show with Queens of the Stone Age in Maryland, and a prime spot at Pitchfork Fest. Later in the Summer she'll head out on overseas before heading back to the U.S., and then back to Europe again, then back to the U.S. again for some dates with The Black Keys. There's no letup in sight.

In other noteworthy Letterman performance news, Dave brought in Angel Olsen on June 16 and Sam Smith on June 18. Olsen played "Hi-Five" from Burn Your Fire for No Witness, and Smith continued his fast rise with a rousing, large-band rendition of "Stay With Me." Even more recently, The War on Drugs and Kiesza both played in the last week. Flanked by a dance crew and a graffiti-covered set, the Canadian pop songwriter, who will play her first US show at Santos Party House, stopping by last night (July 10) to perform "Hideaway" from her recent EP of the same name. Though she ends her set inside, part of it happens on the street. The War on Drugs were around on July 7 for a rendition of their standout "Red Eyes" from Lost in the Dream replete with ripping guitar work.

And in non-Letterman late night highlights, Sylvan Esso made their network TV debut on Fallon on Wednesday (7/9), where they were joined by Questlove himself, who just can't resist.

All the performances can be seen below, as well as a complete list of St. Vincent's many tour dates.

Why is St. Vincent playing everywhere but the west coast?

Oh, west coast. Please do keep continuing to suck it.

Live on Letterman is a really good show. Was front row for the Glen Hansard one in December. One of the best shows I've ever been to.

How do you enter for tickets for the live on letterman taping?

Annie Clark is gay?

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2014 11:43 AM

She is totally not gay. She dates Barrie Crownstein.

Yeah she and Barrie Crownstein have been together for awhile now. Such heteros.

@6:48 don't be an ignorant cunt.

@6:48 how many times do you jack off to furry porn a night just to convince yourself that you're not completely worthless

I've balled 'lesbians' before. It's possible.

@11:31 trust me, they were just horny.

Posted by Anonymous | July 14, 2014 2:02 AM

@9:15 she most likely does not. But per St. Vincent, it is entirely possible. Translation: I pretty much only date girls but I'm open to suggestions.

LOL, the contest for winning tix to this thing involved badly manipulating the cover art for her latest album.

it's not attempting to look edgy. Look at the aesthetic of the entire video. Muted colours, strange but ultimately dull styling. Don't you think that she might be trying to represent the mundane nature of life: 'turn on the tv it looks just like a window'. I mean, even the pulse of the song is really fixed. rigid. clockwork. Obsessively minimalistic. Birth in Reverse is very similar in a very different way: it deals with the mundaneness of her life post-tour and makes fun of it. This takes a mundane and repetitive media canvas and uses it as a metaphor for life.
