Earlier this week, St. Vincent posted a pixelated and aesthetically cropped Instagram video of her covering “Modern Girl,” a song song from Sleater-Kinney’s 2005 LP The Woods.

Theatrical indie rocker and guitar god Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, is returning to Philly this fall with a show at Electric Factory on November 28th.
Clark’s been up to some pretty cool gigs since her self-titled album in 2014. From designing her own signature guitars, to recently making her horror film directorial debut with her film The Birthday Party, which is featured on the female-led anthology, XX — Clark has been mighty busy.
