St. Vincent Itinerary
Annie Clark’s transformation into St. Vincent began in Tulsa, her place of birth and musical inspiration. Spend time in the same spots where this Grammy Award-winning artist grew up for a true taste of Tulsa. Fans can also revisit Oklahoma venues where she’s performed. Finish your St. Vincent-inspired travels in Kiowa — a familiar landmark along her regular voyages between Dallas and Tulsa.
Stop 1: Cain’s Ballroom
Annie Clark attended Cain’s Ballroom concerts as a fan before making her return to perform as St. Vincent on May 15, 2012.
"This will be my first time to play Cain's Ballroom. The last time I was there it was to see Tripping Daisy. That was a while ago," St. Vincent said in a 2012 Tulsa World interview. "I'm sure it smells better now than it did back then.”
Stop 2: Brady Theater
St. Vincent performed at the Brady Theater while touring in support of her “MassEducation” re-release. At this hometown show, St. Vincent referenced several local attractions in an altered rendition of “New York,” as reported on by The Oklahoman.
"I still go back to Tulsa for the summers," St. Vincent said in a 2012 Tulsa World interview.
Stop 3: BOK Center
St. Vincent joined the Black Keys for their BOK Center tour date on December 20, 2014. The Tulsa native amped up the energy with a mix of bright vocals, guitar solos and robotic movements before turning the stage over to the Black Keys.
"I come back here all the time," she said in a 2012 Tulsa World interview. "I used to listen to the contemporary country stations in Tulsa. I think that music is genetically engineered to make me cry."
Stop 4: Mazzio's Italian Eatery
While performing on the Brady Theater stage in February 2018, St. Vincent switched up lyrics to her “New York” song.
"Tulsa isn't Tulsa without you, love / So far in a few blocks from Mazzio's / To be on Brookside / And if I call you from Oral Roberts University ..."
Visit this Tulsa-based pizza chain for an endless pizza buffet and fresh salad bar, or choose between made-to-order pasta, spicy boneless wings, toasted hoagies and create-your-own lasagna.
Stop 5: Brookside District
At her February 2018 Brady Theater concert, St. Vincent changed a few lyrics to her “New York” song in honor of her hometown.
Hit the shops at Tulsa’s Brookside District, and discover must-have clothing inside charming boutiques. Guests can also choose between more than 35 restaurants and nightlife hotspots for a happy hour gathering or dinner reservation.
Stop 6: World’s Largest Praying Hands
St. Vincent mentioned several nearby attractions while singing a fresh take on “New York” at the Brady Theater.
Stop by Oral Roberts University for a photo opp in front of the World’s Largest Praying Hands, or support Golden Eagles athletics inside the on-campus Tulsa Mabee Center.
Stop 7: Kiowa, OK
Annie Clark often listened to Oklahoma artist Reba McEntire during her childhood in Tulsa. While traveling between Dallas and Tulsa, St. Vincent took notice of the small town where McEntire graduated from high school.
“When I was a kid, we would drive up between Dallas and Tulsa quite a bit and we'd always pass through Kiowa, Oklahoma, where Reba was born. There was a big sign that read, ‘The birthplace of Reba McEntire’ and we'd listen to ‘Fancy,’ such a wonderful song,” she said in an interview with the Guardian in 2012.
