The “Fear The Future Tour” announcement comes in the midst of an eventful year for St. Vincent (nee Annie Clark). The GRAMMY®-winning artist and “bona fide guitar god [and] pop visionary” (Rolling Stone) made her directorial debut in February when ‘The Birthday Party’ from the ‘XX’ horror anthology premiered at the Sundance Film Festival (she also wrote and scored the piece). More recently, she was named ambassador for Record Store Day 2017, recorded a 7” single with John Legend to benefit Planned Parenthood, and unveiled updates to her signature collection of Ernie Ball guitars.
Musician and songwriter Annie Clark - aka St. Vincent - is one of the most distinctive artistic voices and arrestingly original guitarists of her generation. Her recent album, the self-titled St. Vincent , won her "album of the year" designations from the NME, the Guardian, and Entertainment Weekly. In 2014, St. Vincent performed on the season finale of Saturday Night Live and, in 2015, she won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album. She has been the recipient of the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award and the Q Maverick award, both given for outstanding innovation in the arts.
An incredible live performer, Clark has been heralded as "the first truly 21st century guitar hero" by Guitar World magazine, and is constantly pushing the boundaries of today's musical landscape. St. Vincent’s incomparable signature electric guitar for Ernie Ball Music Man has been critically acclaimed by everyone from Guitar World to Vogue.
This past Sundance Film Festival, Annie expanded her creativity and vision with a filmmaking debut. She premiered her “BIRTHDAY PARTY” as part of the XX anthology. She co-wrote, scored, and directed the piece, which stars Melanie Lynskey, Joe Swanberg and Sheila Vand. Hollywood Reporter called it “most original […] with its own mad energy, quirky gallows humor and idiosyncratic visual signature,” while Variety said it left audiences “interested to see what Clark could deliver at feature length.”

Currently, this event has not approved using our video screens. Please feel free to check back closer to the event for updates. If approved, we will post notice here.
For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
