St. Vincent appeared on last night's Saturday Night Live season finale to perform a few impeccably orchestrated tracks from her recent self-titled album.

After she was introduced by Andy Samberg, Annie Clark broke into "Digital Witness" with her band. The live drummer and two synth players bolstered the performance, as Annie wailed on her guitar and acted out the song with snappy choreography. They played with pinpoint precision, which was especially remarkable considering the clockwork movements.
For the next song, they broke out "Birth in Reverse" and really upped their stage presence. The front synth player switched from Moog to guitar and joined Annie in her robotic choreography. Their playing was tight, but the awesome lights, dancing, and Devo-like unity of the band were the real highlights of the show. Check out both videos above
