St. Vincent, a.k.a. formidable shredder/songstress Annie Clark, has a new album Strange Mercy coming out in September, and as a sort of prelude to its release she’ll play a show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art—in the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, a.k.a. the open-air space on the museum’s rooftop, which has never played host to a rock shows since it opened its doors in 1987. The show’s taking place on August 25, and right now details regarding ticket on-sale dates and pricing don’t go much beyond that. So instead, let’s learn about art! Right now and through October the garden is displaying a series of sculptures by British artist Anthony Caro; there’s a slideshow of those pieces, which will presumably not be hauled into storage for the occasion, after the jump.
I wonder if she’ll do her Big Black set?
And if you miss her at the Met, she’ll also be at Webster Hall on November 3.
