You can be a digital—and radio—witness to the silver-haired St. Vincent in concert tonight, August 9. WFUV will broadcast St. Vincent's free show from Celebrate Brooklyn's grassy idyll at the Prospect Park Bandshell beginning at 9p.m. EDT, hosted by The Alternate Side's Alisa Ali. Listen to the show on 90.7 FM and also streaming online, and we'll archive the show as soon as we can.

Since the release of St. Vincent's ferociously beautiful self-titled album earlier this year—her fourth solo record—Brooklyn-based Annie Clark's assured ascendance as rock 'n' roll's astonishing guitar-shredding goddess, with silver hair and a sci-fi sparkle in her eye, has been thrilling to watch. So what better way to close out Celebrate Brooklyn's starry 2014 summer season last Saturday night at the Prospect Park Bandshell than with St. Vincent's brilliantly unconventional, explosive show, broadcast live on FUV? Happily, you can revisit that extraordinary night now in the FUV Vault.

St. Vincent blurs the lines between innovation and accessibility. She tests, and even destroys, boundaries. The tension that results from such musical experimentation is what makes her music so infectious: Pounding dance rhythms come and go, synthesized blasts of sound pulse and throb, angular guitars cut and slice. All the nervous musical activity partially, but not totally, masks the wit and bite of the lyrics.
