St Vicious DJ Set
July 27 @ 6:00 pm
St. Vicious is the DJ alias of St. Vincent. Yet another facet of one of the most innovative and enigmatic presences in modern music, St. Vicious has rocked the 1s and 2s everywhere from intimate parties to the Hollywood Bowl. St. Vicious’ DJ skills are part of a prodigious arsenal that has won St. Vincent the 2014 GRAMMY Award for Best Alternative Album (for her self-titled fourth album), as well as Top 10 U.S./UK chart positions for 2017’s MASSEDUCTION—which landed at #1 on the Best of 2017 lists of Jon Pareles of The New York Times and The Guardian—and placed high in the year-end rankings of The AV Club, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Mashable, The New York Daily News, the NME, Noisey, Paste, Pitchfork, Q, Stereogum, USA Today, and more. St. Vincent’s most recent album, MassEducation, reveals another dimension of 2017’s universally acclaimed MASSEDUCTION. A stunning standalone work in its own right, MassEducation was recorded live in the studio by Annie Clark on vocals and Thomas Bartlett on piano over two nights in August 2017 during the mixing of MASSEDUCTION. The new album lays bare the exquisite songcraft of its other half, rendering songs like “Slow Disco” and “Savior” and their subjects in vivid, vulnerable new light. Clark herself describes the album as “two dear friends playing songs together with the kind of secret understanding one can only get through endless nights in New York City.” In addition to deejaying, recording and performing, St. Vincent has directed the short horror film The Birthday Party and has released her signature Ernie Ball Music Man guitar.
