Weekend Concert Calendar: St. Vincent, Lucinda Williams, Erykah Badu

There are a ton of great shows happening this weekend in Phoenix. Out of everything going on this weekend I have to admit that I am most excited to see St. Vincent this Sunday at Modified Arts. I've been a long time fan of St. Vincent aka Annie Clark starting with her debut solo album Marry Me and her just released sophomore album Actor is high on my list of favorites of the year.

Also of interest this weekend is Lucinda Williams, recently hailed as "America's Best Songwriter" by Time Magazine, will be performing at Mesa Arts Center on Saturday. Another long time favorite of mine Erykah Badu performs at Celebrity Theatre.
