On August 25, 2011, St. Vincent took the stage in the Temple of Dendur when the concert's original location—the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden—was rained out. In celebration of the exhibition Anthony Caro on the Roof, the singer-songwriter performed a special preview of her fall tour. A private reception preceded St. Vincent's performance, and concert-goers were invited to come back on a sunny day to view the exhibition.
In honor of the event, Spectrum commissioned Hero Design to create a limited-edition print, which was available for purchase during the concert.

On August 25, 2011, in partnership with SPIN magazine, Spectrum welcomed St. Vincent to the Temple of Dendur for a very special concert.
