St. Vincent @ The GRAMMY Museum

Yesterday marked 20 years since the death of Kurt Cobain. Last night St. Vincent paid tribute to the Nirvana leader during her show at Chicago’s Riviera with a cover of “Lithium.” Watch fan-captured video below.

Thanks Rey for the tip.

Coincidentally, Muse also performed the song last night, during their Lollapalooza Brasil set. You can watch that below.

  1. pfft. if she were a REAL fan she would have played “school”.

  2. She played it in Milwaukee on Friday night, too. The whole place went crazy, it was wonderful.

  3. maybe it’s the sound quality but it doesn’t sound too good. Her cover of Nico’s These Days is Ace though

  4. None of the energy of the original.

  5. Faithful cover, well played… I think it’s good? It’s more of a moment of respect than artistic expression. I don’t think it’s possible to recreate the energy of the original, but she does a pretty damned good job here!!

  6. Makes sense, she played on the Polyphonic Spree version back in the day.

  7. Yet she didn’t play it in Seattle
