ACL: Blood on the Tracks

Day 2 of ACL Fest 2007.

"Now I'm bleeding. I'm always bleeding." That's what Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, said after she ripped the strings off her SG around 4pm Saturday. The Dallas-based multi-instrumentalist stood alone in ripped fishnets and a white dress, the sound from Cold War Kids bleeding all over her too. Still, Clark managed an inspired set as the fest's late add, including a fantastic cover of the Beatles' "Dig a Pony" and a noise-bombed ending to debut Marry Me's "Your Lips Are Red." Her set at the Mohawk tonight promises to sound a little better.

Apparently another fire broke out last night, behind one of the speakers on stage at Bjork. I looked up at one point and saw it, but figured it was just part of her crazy stage show.
