Video: St. Vincent Covers Pearl Jam’s “Black” During Portlandia Tour

    It’s become increasingly obvious that Annie Clark loves performing covers under the guise of St. Vincent. Just last week she started playing an Elvis Costello tune before running through “Cheerleader” live on Conan. She would again show off her cover skills shortly thereafter during the Portlandia tour stop in New York City. Clark, who was alone onstage with just her guitar, performed an intimate, stunning take on Pearl Jam classic “Black.” You can watch the fan-shot footage below, which is crappy visually but solid on the audio.
