On the Road w/ St Vincent part 1 (+ new MP3)

DOWNLOAD: St Vincent – Now. Now. (MP3)

John Vanderslice and St Vincent (Annie Clark) are on tour. The other day John kicked off this Brooklyn Vegan blogging series with a post from the road. Now here is Annie’s first correspondence….

St Vincent

Pacific Northwest, you are so ruling it! When I was a teenager growing in Texas, and the internet still had the stigma of being only for freaks and weirdos (the subject of many a “Sally Jessy Raphael” episode), I would spend hours checking out bands on the Kill Rock Stars website. (Uh-oh…A recent look at the KRS site shows that it may not have changed at all since 1996…) At any rate, I had in mind that Portland, Seattle, and Olympia were the holy trifecta of awesome, the Petri dish of progressive culture, the coveted antithesis of everything Texas. I think my teenage fantasy was correct…Pacific Northwest, you are so ruling it!

Speaking of ruling, JV is the tops. I’m trying to convince him that he needs a wan, pale, curly haired “Annie”-named guest bass player…
