Video: St. Vincent Plays Tom Waits Cover, “Surgeon” Acoustic Takes

Not only can St. Vincent’s Annie Clark pull off an unhinged, electric guitar-strapped take on Tom Waits (as we saw in July during the Raindogs Revisited tour), but she has an unplugged take in her Waits arsenal as well. Clark stopped by Spin‘s offices recently for an acoustic set, in which she revisited Strange Mercy cut “Surgeon” and “Tango Till They’re Sore.” All this while she was busy unveiling a brand new official video and returning to the Late Show with David Letterman in promotion of the new record.

Check out two videos from her performance below:
