In House #1844: John Vanderslice & St. Vincent Tonight in Salt Lake City
We like to call him the busiest man in indie rock, and it's a case that can be well-argued. San Francisco's John Vanderslice has kept up a hectic schedule of producing, recording, and touring over the past decade or so, while still finding time to feed his passions for photography and cinema. He recently announced the release of a forthcoming album, his sixth, this August on Barsuk. Currently in the opening stages of a spring U.S. tour, Vanderslice and longtime collaborator Dave Douglas play Salt Lake City's Kilby Court tonight as part of a bill that will also feature the results of the duo's invitation to sing or play bass with them on stage (Vanderslice Idol, perhaps?).
Touring with Vanderslice this time out is the one-woman band St. Vincent, who is Dallas, TX's Annie Clark (erstwhile member of the Polyphonic Spree). She's parlayed a quirky, somewhat mysterious persona, a debut EP, and much blog-love over the past year or so into a debut full-length, Marry Me, out in July on Beggar's.
In House #1844.
Focus: John Vanderslice & St. Vincent play Salt Lake City's Kilby Court tonight. Plus, new music from Elk City, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, The National, Bill Callahan, and more.
