St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) has added 17 dates to her headlining tour through North America. Clark earned her stripes as a former member of both The Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Steven's touring band, and her debut full-length Marry Me is out on Beggars Banquet on July 10th.
Best quote from the Brooklyn Vegan Vanderslice/Clark interview:
Do you look forward to going to the car wash?
I do! I was told as a child that the water on the windshield was actually little magical water mice running around cleaning the car at warp speed. Adults are liars.
Best quote from the LAist commenting on people like John Vanderslice:
You were in the Polyphonic Spree and now you're touring with John Vanderslice – is it possible to be surrounded by more friendly people? With that said, who is nicer John or the Spree?
You forgot to throw Sufjan in the mix. That's one brutal, vicious “nice-off.”
