St. Vincent performs at the 2015 Coachella Music and Arts Festival on Sunday, April 19, 2015, in Indio, Calif.

St. Vincent's Annie Clark doesn't hold back in concert, but that's not always a good thing. During a show in Knoxville, Tenn., Sunday night, she was climbing a stack of speakers -- as she often does during performances -- and somehow slipped and fell back onto the stage.

According to a crowd report from the show via Reddit, as Clark started climbing, the top speaker tumbled down off the stack and almost crushed her.

Watch a clip of the fall below:

Another Reddit commenter said after the fall, Clark crawled to the center of the stage and laid there for several minutes, as documented in the photo below. Then, once the crowd was quieted with concern, she jumped up and went into a frenzy of dance moves and music and proceeded with the rest of the show. 

Afterwards, Clark took to her social accounts to assure her fans she was okay and thank the security guard for saving her. Looks like she suffered a cut on her wrist but thankful no concussion and the security guard wound up with a laceration on his forehead. 

 

Their injuries:
