The event was attended by a series of special guests, including Cate Blanchett, Zadie Smith, Jeanne Donovan Fisher, to culminate with St. Vincent in an acoustic performance of her single “New York”.
Recently, St. Vincent has been very participatory on their networks, announcing a podcast series in which they interview artists from their bathrooms, in addition to writing a single for the Netflix series “The Eddy”.
