St. Vincent

I Am a Lot Like You!

The Grammy Award-winning musician brings her transgressive pop on a rare visit to Scotland as part of her I Am a Lot Like You! tour.

Fearsomely intelligent, critically adored, St. Vincent – aka Annie Clark – is one of the most celebrated musicians on the planet, gleefully colliding defiant experimentalism with joyfully accessible pop in her uncompromisingly personal songs. Across six much-admired studio albums, she has created pioneering art-pop that is rich, nuanced and constantly surprising, winning a Grammy award in 2015 for her eponymous fifth album, among a string of other prizes and nominations. She has played with The Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens, and collaborated with David Byrne and Swans.

Renowned for her flamboyant stage shows – she famously once performed in a toilet costume – St. Vincent brings her transgressive pop on a rare visit to Scotland as part of her I Am a Lot Like You! tour. This is music full of drama, depth and sonic invention – and it’s lots of fun.
