For one night only, as part of Vivid Sydney, you can see the Grammy Award-winning rockstar St. Vincent aka Annie Clark performing at Carriageworks. The indie musician released her fifth album Masseduction to critical acclaim for her inventive lyrics, energetic guitar work and catchy rock-pop sounds. St. Vincent is true contemporary musician, and she joins a line-up of international wins for Vivid, including Vivid Live’s Mazzy Star, Cat Power and Solange.
