Annie Clark aka St.Vincent and me in front of The Consignment House
Yesterday I had a chance meeting with a very talented artist; Annie Clark. My friend Margaret and I were just browsing around The Consignment House when I saw her and mentioned it to Margaret. “I really do think that’s Annie Clark. I mean, she looks just like her!” I must have said 5 times. After a quick Google search to see if she was playing this weekend, it was confirmed. I sheepishly said hello and she said “hello!”, knowing that I recognized her. We had a lovely little chat and I gushed about her latest album. All in all, I’m very glad I said hello because she is an incredibly nice, talented, fashionable (look at her cute cordovan leather booties) and articulate person. We talked about Circa and how bad The Nook’s food is and I told her that I didn’t know she was playing in Cville (shame on me for not keeping up with The Jefferson this Fall). She kindly insisted that she put me and my husband on her list so that we could attend. How cool is that? We went to the show last night and it didn’t disappoint. She played a song by The Pop Group (She is Beyond Good and Evil) that ended up being my favorite performance of the night, but both the opening tunes (both my top picks from Strange Mercy) were also standouts.
