While performing at a charity concert at the Hollywood Palladium on Sunday night for victims of the recent wild fires on the west coast, St. Vincent delivered a lush and emotive acoustic cover of California rock titans Red Hot Chili Peppers’s 1992 track ‘Breaking the Girl’. SV went for broke on her solo cover and gave the songs lyrics a different impression. It’s a really special performance to say the least, and it all came together at the relatively the last minute.
Vincent whose real name is Annie Clark, on stage thanked Peppers guitarist Josh Klingoffer. “I wanna give a very special thank you to Josh Klinghoffer,” she said towards the end of the song according to Rolling Stone , “for f***ing b***ing guitar playing, but also for correcting my chords just about 20 minutes ago.”
