Austin City Limits is excited to announce that we will be live streaming our highly anticipated taping with the amazing St. Vincent and her band on May 14, 2018. We’ll be beaming live directly from the ACL stage at 8pm CT/9 pm ET on ACLTV’s YouTube channel.
First appearing on ACL in 2009, the groundbreaking Texas native—born Annie Clark—is currently touring in support of her critically-acclaimed fifth album MASSEDUCTION. The New York Times’ Jon Pareles named it his #1 album of 2017 hailing St. Vincent and the album as “precise, unblinking, and in control unlike any since David Bowie.”
Following 2014’s Grammy-winning Alternative Album of the Year, the eponymous St. Vincent, MASSEDUCTION reaffirms St. Vincent’s standing as one of the most innovative presences in modern music. The mass seduction of the album’s title is a bold, emotional reckoning, largely themed around power — or as Clark specifies, “All the forces that can swallow you whole.” MASSEDUCTION’s songs flesh out these themes as a mosaic of St. Vincent’s own experiences: “You can’t fact-check it, it’s not a diary entry, but if you want to know about my life, listen to this record.”
One of music’s most thrilling live acts, St. Vincent’s recent shows have wowed fans and critics the world over, with Variety citing, “Annie Clark’s ownership of the stage felt like fearless evidence that rock’s future might actually be female… she’s got enough style, ambition, chops, and complications for a half-dozen rock auteurs.”
Join us on May 14 for this full-set live stream on our ACLTV YouTube channel. The broadcast version will air on PBS later this year as part of our upcoming Season 44.
