Interview with Annie Clark aka St. Vincent

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Besides being adorable and ridiculously talented, Annie Clark aka St. Vincent is a total smart ass. If we hadn't read her interview with John Vanderslice (who she is opening for tomorrow night at the Largo), we might have mistaken her flippant humor for dry insults.

On the road I'm sure you run across varying levels of cleanliness in the hotels. Are there certain things that you do, or avoid touching when you're in a particularly creepy hotel or motel?

Oh dear! I have seen some pretty ghastly things in my days. I recently stayed in a Microtel that had a particularly disconcerting red stain all over the sheets. I consoled myself by thinking it was just the Kool-Aid stain from a cult suicide.
