St. Vincent resurrected the spirit of Mary Tyler Moore at Grinders KC


Perfect weather, an abundance of laughter, and the power of music combined for an entertaining evening at Grinders KC in the Crossroads.

Indie rock artist St. Vincent rolled through Kansas City Oct. 7 in support of her latest record, Daddy’s Home, bringing along LA-based comedian Ali Macofsky to kick off the night.

Macofsky’s humor was relatable to the audience, discussing everything between jobs in the service industry, families, and the quirks of last year’s quarantine. She kept the audience interacting and laughing for 45 minutes, warming up the crowd just in time for almost two hours with St. Vincent.

St. Vincent resurrected the spirit of Mary Tyler Moore through her elaborate production, with a colorful and geometric set and the nostalgic costumes to match. The energy between the singer, band, and backup singers/dancers was positively contagious into the crowd’s energy. Eventually, everyone was cheering and moving just as much as the performers were. St. Vincent shared her appreciation for Kansas City and showed it through her passionate performance.
