While Neutral Milk Hotel certainly has indie god status, the current god – or goddess, er, saint, in this case – is St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, who will be in concert on TUESDAY (April 1) at the Sokol Auditorium.

St. Vincent, with her hair now dyed white, has always had a quirky bent to her rock-dance-funk-hip-hop mash-up. But her latest tour has critics and fans raving about her theatrical stage show that features costumes, special lighting and staging, including a sequence that has her rolling down the stage set's stairway centerpiece beneath a strobe light. She's obviously picked up some moves from former tour mate David Byrne of Talking Heads fame. According to reviews, it's a sight to see.

And hear.

St. Vincent, a native of Oklahoma, is on the road in support of her just-released self-titled fourth album, which has drawn all sorts of praise from reviewers.
