St. Vincent ascended into the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium Monday night to a capacity crowd for the Fear The Future Tour. The mainly one woman show with a band hidden behind curtains, Annie Clark’s astounding and gratifying guitar plucking soothed the soul of this progressive rock queen. The influences of David Byrne can still be greatly heard and seen through her costume changes and and stage presence. The tour is appropriately titled. Fear The Future, because the future is female.
Giving support to open the night are Annie Clark’s aunt and uncle, Bay area’s jazz duo Tuck Andress and Patti Cathcart Andress.
