St. Vincent played MoMA’s Party in the Garden (pics, video), released “Fast Slow Disco”

MoMA’s annual Party in the Garden gala benefit and afterparty on Thursday (5/31) night migrated from their usual location in MoMA’s sculpture garden into the Agnes Gund Garden Lobby due to rainy weather. That didn’t stop an assortment of revelers dressed in their evening best (Daily Mail saw Diane Sawyer, and Torres and serpentwithfeet were also among the attendees) from dancing to DJ sets from SIMIHAZE and Sofi Tukker, and the evening was capped off with a performance from St. Vincent. Like she has before, Annie Clark left her guitars and the tightly choreographed theatrics of her big stage show behind for piano-based interpretations of songs from her excellent 2017 album MASSEDUCTION. Joined by frequent collaborator Thomas Bartlett aka Doveman and another keyboard player, they played in front of an assortment of the striking visuals that have accompanied the MASSEDUCTION tour. Check out pictures from Thursday night in the gallery above, and watch some video clips below.

At Coachella and other recent shows, St. Vincent played a version of MASSEDUCTION track “Slow Disco” that she described in an interview as “a little South Beach” and “like gay disco.” Now she’s released a studio version of that take on the song, called “Fast Slow Disco,” and you can watch the video for it below. On Twitter, Annie said, “I always felt this song could wear many different outfits and live many different lives. Here she is in disco pants, sweating on a New York dance floor.”

St. Vincent has a bunch of upcoming tour dates, including a return to NYC in July for Panorama, shows with Florence + The Machine, ACL Fest, Life is Beautiful, Lollapalooza, and more.
