Alternative rock-artist Annie Clark when she on stage is known as St. Vincent and since her recent performance at the Sydney Opera House which can best be described as simply outstanding she has been one of the main topics of conversation within the alternative-rock music community. Her debut performance left the audience and music insiders stunned with her exceptional performance as she put on a "mesmerizing theatrical show that in the words of some music reviewers will fo down in the books as a truly special one" that will not soon be forgotten.
The scintillating performer arrived on the stage dressed in all black with her shocking white hair and she put the audience on notice from her opening song "Rattlesnake" that she was going to put forth a performance that would have them telling their friends about it. The song had a sensational rhythm and indie pop groove and she followed it up with "Birth in Reverse" which some in attendance felt might have been her best song of the evening.
She displayed a superior stage presence throughout her show as she at times interacted with her fans and let them get to know her through some stories she revealed about herself such as a mind which imposes the faces of famous on homeless people, a story which let the audience know that she has a very unique and creative imagination
The most talented musical artists have the ability to connect with fans when performing live and this is something she accomplished from the very begining of her show. She created different moods for each song with her sensational light show and throughout the evening the audience felt as if she were leaving part of her soul on stage as she sang with such a raw intensity.
Annie Clark showed in this performance that her album "St. Vincent" is tailor-made for the live stage and her performance as St. Vincent at the Sydney Opera House has established her as one of the top acts of the year in the eyes of many and someone who is unlikely to have to worry about ticket sales in the near future.
