St. Vincent’s sold-out show at the Palladium on Thursday night was a two-parter — Annie Clark began with a set of 10 songs selected from her first four albums. Then, after a short break and a wardrobe change, she returned to the stage to perform all 13 tunes, in order, on her latest album “Masseduction.” As her recent performances have become, Thursday’s was more performance art, with Clark alone onstage, backed by striking projections and vivid colors, singing and shredding to backing tracks. In all, spectacular.
Tuck & Patti opened the night.
Setlist: Marry Me, Now Now, The Strangers, Actor Out of Work, Cruel, Cheerleader, Strange Mercy, Digital Witness, Rattlesnake, Birth in Reverse. (Break) “Masseduction” in its entirety.
