St Vincent covers Joni Mitchell at intimate and stripped back London piano gig

Annie Clark and Thomas Barlett stun at Cadogan Hall

Last night saw St Vincent perform at intimate and stripped back gig at London’s Cadogan Hall, backed just by a piano. Check out footage and the setlist below.

While last year’s divisive ‘Fear The Future’ tour saw Annie Clark debut material from her acclaimed album ‘MASSEDUCTION‘ with just striking visuals and a backing track, her subsequent 2018 headline and festival tour opted for a more choreographed full-band affair.

Now, for the one-off show in the capital billed as ‘An Intimate Evening With St Vincent’, Clark was accompanied by collaborator and composer Thomas Bartlett on keys.

Among the highlights, the pair aired a rendition of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Court And Spark’:

Beyond that, she drew heavily on her latest album alongside a smattering of career-spanning fan favourites, stripping the songs down to their bare bones for new and more tender arrangements. Check out footage below.
