WFUV will broadcast St. Vincent's free show from Celebrate Brooklyn's grassy idyll at the Prospect Park Bandshell beginning at 9p.m. EDT, hosted by The Alternate Side's Alisa Ali. Listen to the show on 90.7 FM and also streaming online, and we'll archive the show as soon as we can.

Ahead of WFUV's live broadcast of St. Vincent at Celebrate Brooklyn tonight at 9, "Saint" Vin Scelsa—yes, Vin has been ordained a saint (look at that official certificate he's holding)—contemplates a Saturday night chock full of saints during a one hour edition of "Idiot's Delight"® at 8. Where else but on WFUV can you find St. Vin segueing to St. Vincent?
