Live To The Fullest With CupcakKe At RBC, Catch The Rat Pack At The Statler And Find Big Trouble In Little China At Alamo Drafthouse.

So St. Vincent pretty much killed it at The Bomb Factory this past weekend.

Annie Clark is currently by far Dallas’ brightest shining talent and is showing no signs of slowing down. But on Saturday night, even though she now lives a New York rock star lifestyle, Clark took a moment to pay homage to Dallas by recalling her time growing up here.

The rest of her set was flawless and a testament to how well the Dallas-raised Clark has been able to navigate the worlds of music, art and fashion without missing a beat or losing the ability to craft songs that keeps her fans and audience happy.

We’ll obviously let you know the next time St. Vincent is going to be back in Dallas. Until then, there’s plenty of other awesome talents rolling through town and plenty of events to check out, as you can see from the list below.

CupcakKe at RBC
The Chicago rapper is best known for her overtly sexual but empowering tracks. Since bursting onto the scene, CupcakKe’s music has garnered attention because of its risqué lyrics, but in her newest album, Ephorize, the artist explores themes of self-esteem, LGBT causes and the search for true love.
