A Saint Making a Joyous Noise

The venerated noise in question belongs to Annie Clark, otherwise known as St. Vincent. Having established herself as a member of the Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens' touring band, Clark set off on her own with her stunning 2007 debut, Marry Me. Now touring in support of her new release, Actor, Clark brings her considerable musical chops to bear at the Black Cat on Friday, May 21. Evoking not only female singer/songwriters like Kate Bush and Regina Spektor, but also the idiosyncratic Stevens, this is a show not to miss.
