Contest: St. Vincent Tickets

5/12/2009 02:53:00 AM
Interesting problem that I have, lots of stuff to giveaway, and not enough time to hold the contests. This one's got a time constraint since the concert is on 5/19 so I'll post this one first, but stay tuned because I may post another one before the week is out. This contest will be for a pair of tickets to the St. Vincent concert coming up next Tuesday 5/19.

St. Vincent is multi-instrumentalist/singer/composer Annie Clark, a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma and a graduate of Berklee College of Music, who took the music world by storm in 2007 with her debut album Marry Me. She is touring in support of her much-anticipated follow-up, Actor, due out on May 5 on 4AD. Actor was co-produced by Clark and John Congleton (Modest Mouse, Polyphonic Spree) and features 11 new songs, all written and arranged by Clark. The beguiling, sophisticated new record exhibits an even greater ambition than her debut album, with more masterful arrangements, grander songwriting, and performances ever more confident and inspired. Clark developed an idiosyncratic writing process for Actor, immersing herself in some of her favorite films—Badlands, Pierrot le Fou, The Wizard of Oz, Stardust Memories, Sleeping Beauty—and beginning each song as a secret film score, then slowly giving it independence as its structure and lyrics came fully into focus. The resulting eleven tracks are as cinematic as can be, but the movie is a private one, revealing its storyline in hushed, cunning couplets and cascades of scathing guitar.

Send me an email with "St. Vincent" in the subject heading and I'll put your name in a drawing for a pair of tickets to the concert being held at the Somerville Theatre on 5/19. Contest ends this Friday, 5/15 at 10pm EDT.

I will admit, I've never heard her music. But I'm very interested to hear it. Maybe I'll see you at the show.
