Quirky, sexy, and cool, St. Vincent's Annie Clark may just be the Zooey Deschanel of rock 'n' roll, i.e. she's adorable, she's legitimate, and she's totally impossible to avoid.
And today, we here at Crossfade would like you to know that she's coming to The Stage Miami (thanks to Sirens and Sealions singer-songwriter and Mute Miami booking boss Johanna Viscaino) for a rocking femme fatale performance on Thursday, May 31.
If you go, we can almost guarantee that you will fall in love.
Historically, the music-consuming public has a hard time accepting female rockers. A lot of the time, we're turned off by their, well, girly-ness.
Rock and roll is about edge. It's about guts. It's not about being cute and flirty. And thankfully, Clark is one of those emotionally damaged, attitude-in-your-face types, in the great tradition of Joan Jett, Fiona Apple, and Karen O. Her delivery is delicate and feminine. But her message and presentation are rock 'n' roll to the core.
And not only is she simply doing it, she's making it better.
