All Saint's day
There's not much on Lawrence's docket for the last day of March, except this absolute whopper of a show: Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, will somehow be at Liberty Hall, 644 Massachusetts St., at 8 p.m. (doors at 7). The 31-year-old singer-songwriter, who a year ago found herself nude and in the crosshairs of a poisonous snake, comes to downtown on the verge of super stardom. Her self-titled fourth album dropped a month ago to insane critical claim, including Best New Music honors from Pitchfork, which dubbed the project "bold and almost jarringly confident."
In another weird twist of fate, Clark this tour finds herself skipping over Kansas City and landing here, where there are still, frankly, an alarming number of tickets available for her show, all in the $30 to $40 range. What this means: You should buy some. Seriously, what better thing is there for you to do tonight?
