Guitar-slinging songstress Annie Clark — known to most as St. Vincent — garnered quite a bit of critical acclaim for last year's Strange Mercy. The record landed at No. 12 in The Village Voice's annual Pazz and Jop critics' poll, as a matter of fact, but we'll have more on that later.
For now, punch this one into your iCal, or if you're old school, jot it onto your analog cal: St. Vincent will play Nashville's Cannery Ballroom on May 21. Tickets — which will be available right here on Jan. 27 at 10 a.m. — are $18 in advance and $20 day of. You'll also be able to pick them up in person at Grimey's, The Groove or Parlour & Juke. And because it's my jam, see the video for "Actor out of Work" after the jump. Dah-dah-doot-doot-doo, dah-dah-doot-doot-doo! That's how the riff goes, obviously.
