The weird thing about Annie is that she manages to maintain a generally detached stage personna (at least during this tour, a little less so during the Strange Mercy tour) while being incredibly charimastic and engaged. Certainly one of my very favorite live acts. I agree with Cobbler on Beach House - I wasn't too impressed with Victoria's stage presence even though I love their music.

I'll add Eleanor Friedberger to the list of favorite female performers. She's great live.

You know me to be a champion of Victoria. She and Annie are absolutely tops for me. Beyond that, there's a lot of competition for the trinity. Might have to be a Rushmore. Or a power ranking. Whatever the kids at Buzzfeed are championing these days.

Victoria doesn't need the barn-burning stage presence because her voice is so goddamn hypnotic.

They need to hurry up and release an album so I can finally see them live.

I'd probably put Sharon Van Etten with St. Vincent and Bat for Lashes. Not as an explosive stage presence but she performs her songs so intently, the whole crowd hands on to every note. Plus, she's has great banter with fans in between songs.

Yes I love the detachedness. She also has some good banter. She has this weird little narrative and last night was like "you have a nickname ... it's kangaroo" and someone yelled out "that's racist" and everyone had a good old laugh. "That worked a little too well" said Annie.

I assume Karen O would be a great frontwoman as well.

I didn't like the detachedness at all when I first saw it, but I read/viewed some interviewers and realized she's withholding with everyone, so I didn't feel like I just saw her on the wrong tour or anything.

I'm crazy about StVincent right now. I saw her opening for The National in Berlin last week and I love her latest album, it's really wicked music but pretty cool. The show was also great. Shame I discovered her so late. I like Strange Mercy a lot, too, but I'm not really into the work she did with David Byrne.

The Byrne stuff was 1000 times better live than on record. Easily one of my top ten all time shows.

I agree with all of this.

I like that album, and wish I had seen them live.

Regrets .... I've had a few.

I'm really bummed I didn't go to the show earlier this year. I had to help some friends move early that next morning.

Yes, that is a terrible reason not to go to a concert.

A friend asked me last night if I had been to any good gigs lately and I said YES ST VINCENT and she was like who's that and I just started raving, trying to appeal to the feminist in my friend by pointing out that she's better than many males I've seen live, but she did not share my excitement.

I hope to one day find someone in life who I can have ridiculous conversations about music with. Someone who would not be averse to talking about "Let Down" for a straight hour.
