Annie Clark, the goddess better known as St. Vincent, has done a lot lately: released a self-titled #1 album, won a Grammy, and fronted Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Now, it seems, she has also defied death itself.
During her show at Tennessee Theater in Knoxville last night Clark apparently climbed onto a 300 lbs speaker, causing it to fall and strike both her and one of the venue's security personnel who then managed to rescue the performer.
She tweeted this after the incident:
Amazingly, some fans happened to break St. Vincent's no photography policy at just the right moment and caught the near death experience on camera:
According to another fan it seems Clark thankfully recovered in style:
UPDATE: A video of the incident has surfaced and St. Vincent has posted an image of the aftermath as well:
You can catch St. Vincent at one of her remaining tour dates, which you can find here.
