St. Vincent & David Bowie
My friend Blake and I had two of a very limited number of tickets to see Annie Clark (aka, St. Vincent) talk about David Bowie at the closing of the 'David Bowie Is' exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. We had been through the exhibition together once before, and then I went back a second time with my daughter. Being fans of both artists, we were excited to hear her talk about one of her influences.
We hit the road earlier in the day so that we had time for a meal and to visit one of Chicago's many great record stores. Unfortunately, a winter storm was coming in, and there were already weather advisories out. Before we got anywhere near the city, things looked so treacherous on the highway that we decided to bag the plan and stay alive.
Thanks to Stereogum, we can all see and hear at least a little bit of the talk.
