Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (May 9) for the latest night of experimental pop and unique innovation at Eastbourne’s Winter gardens.
Eastbourne Live, in association with Melting Vinyl and Eastbourne Theatres, will be presenting St Vincent on October 23.
The concert follows the success of the first Eastbourne Goes Live show with dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip.
After a sold out Shepherd’s Bush Empire show in February, St. Vincent is back in the UK with only a handful of dates in October, with The Eastbourne Winter Garden being one.
St. Vincent is the moniker for Annie Clark (Polyphonic Spree, Sufjan Stevens), who has been moving at breakneck speed for the past two years, barely stopping to catch her breath amidst a whirlwind of recording and touring.
In 2011 she released her third album, Strange Mercy, which cemented her status as one of her generation’s most fearsome and inventive guitarists and songwriters.
It was during this already monumentally busy time that she completed work with Talking Heads’ David Byrne on their collaborative album ‘Love This Giant,’ another critical smash, with major sold out shows all across Europe.
Just 36 hours after touring wrapped with David Byrne, Clark was back to writing her next album, the self-titled St. Vincent.
Clark has an inspiring creative energy, emphasising a character-driven performance that has become a highlight in her live shows.
It’s charming and alarming, gorgeous and morbid, comforting and uncanny, and she’s not slowing down any time soon.
Tickets are £17.50-£19.50, available from Eastbourne Theatres’ box office (01323 412000), ticketweb (www.ticketweb.co.uk), Seetickets (www.seetickets.com), Vinyl Frontier (Eastbourne), Music’s Not Dead (Bexhill) and Resident Music (Brighton).
