St. Vincent, who we also recently caught at Pitchfork Fest, closed out the Celebrate Brooklyn season in the best way possible on Saturday night (8/9). Apparently people were on line as early as noon for the free, 7:30 pm Prospect Park show. I got there during San Fermin‘s opening set. The Brooklyn venue was already packed, but there were still long lines at both doors wrapping in different directions around the park, and around all the people who decided to just sit outside the gates and listen.

Annie Clark is a rock star who never misses a beat, as she shreds, sings and dances her way around the stage. Banter is kept to a minimum. The robot-like, conveyor belt moves she pulls off in heels with perfect posture while continuing to play notes are almost as impressive as her songs. There was never a dull moment in the show which, unlike Neutral Milk Hotel on the same stage recently, went right to the 10:30 outdoor show curfew. The weather was perfect, and so was Annie’s band which includes her dance-mate, bassist and keyboardist Toko Yasuda (you might also recognize her from The Lapse, The Van Pelt, Blonde Redhead, and Enon), Daniel Mintseris (keyboards), and Matt Johnson (drums).

The concert, which maybe you heard on WFUV (if not, LISTEN NOW BELOW), included almost every song from the new self-titled album. Her 17 song set also included 5 from Strange Mercy, 2 from Actor, 1 from Marry Me. Highlights included the post-encore version of “Strange Mercy” she did along on top of a riser with the sound of crickets in the background, and a stint on someone’s shoulders to get closer to the crowd towards the end of the show.

Look for Annie on Late Night With Seth Meyers tonight (8/11) and tomorrow.
