If she doesn't go off an marry Frankenstein first, St. Vincent will perform April 3 at the State Theatre. / Renata RakshaHere’s a quick roundup of some late-winter and spring concerts announced over the past couple days:

*St. Vincent will tackle her biggest local venue yet, the State Theatre, on April 3. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for $25-$29.50 through Ticketmaster and the State box office. The experimental Dallas art-rocker's new self-titled album is set to arrive February 25. The first single from it, “Birth in Reverse,” is posted below.

*Ex-Minneapolitan Bob Mould will return March 4 to the Woman’s Club Theatre of Minneapolis on a short acoustic tour tied to the 25th anniversary reissue of “Workbook,” his first solo album and last recording as a Minnesotan. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon via First Ave outlets for $25. He’s expected to play "selections from the record" (not the whole thing) and other songs that fit the "Workbook," um, mold, with only bassist Jason Narducy for accompaniment.

Tickets ($25) go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. via Ticketfly.com. Gordon's new album, "Overstep," is due Feb. 25 via ATO Records. Anastasio is already set to play First Ave on Feb. 4.
