Photography highlights: November 13-19

Art can be lovely, mesmerizing, breathtaking and thought provoking. However, art can also be destroyed. Thanks to Art Attack 3 a crowd of 200 plus KDHX supporters saw art destruction in the form of a buck-tooth, chainsaw-wielding mad man. And that was just one of five destruction methods.

On a destruction-less note, Howie Day dazzled the Duck Room on a Thursday evening then just two days later Katie Herzig and Butterfly Boucher did the same at the Old Rock House. Lydia Loveless and The Fling stopped by the good ‘ol Magnolia Avenue Studios for a live performance.

And that folks, sums up yet another week of photography highlights.

KDHX photography highlights: November 6-12

The shows in this town just keep on keeping on. tUnE-YarDs sold-out Off Broadway with the help of Pat Jordache then several days later the third volume of STL Loud kept the walls shaking and the dance floor in motion. The Murder City Players put Jah love on at the Duck Room and the Blind Boys of Alabama with the help of Sara and Sean Watkins lay the soul down at the Old Rock House. The Blind Boys also came in for an in-studio, as did the indie-rock-pop-experimental supergroup Mr. Heavenly.

KDHX photography highlights: October 30-November 5

In the world of photography highlights, this past week was a slow one. That being said, it was not a slow week by any means. In fact, it flew by. Adam Thompson of We Were Promised Jetpacks landed for a in-studio session at the Magnolia Avenue Studios. The Meat Puppets also popped in and had some before dark Halloween fun with a Care Bear and Chris Ward, the KDHX Marketing Director.
The Firebird hosted Mates of State and Generationals on their Halloween bill, costumes too ensued. Then at the close of the work week Indie pop came full circle and locals Dots Not Feathers along with Elsinore showed St. Louis a thing or two about lovely sounds.
And in case you’d forgotten about Sammy Hagar, no need to regret the temporary lapse, he’s back, this time around as Chickenfoot.

KDHX photography highlights: October 23-29

The Pageant’s Monday night dance party that kicked off the last week of October meant one of two things, One: Chromeo was in town with Mayer Hawthorne or Two: Monday is the new Friday. The Smokers Club Tour featuring Curren$y and Method Man kept the early-week party trend rolling and by time the Pageant cleared the haze it was Friday and time for the weekend to really begin with a post-World Series win Southern rock party courtesy of the Drive-By Truckers.

Austin based-trio Ume gave St. Louis a friendly reminder that Texas has exported more than a 2nd place baseball team and rocked the Firebird into a thrash trance. Peter Wolf Crier and Union Tree Review did their Indie thing at Off Broadway and Zion and the Lion Roots Band released their fourth album “Crying for Freedom” at Club Viva. The past week in photos was a busy one and proof that the KDHX photographers taste in music is as eclectic as their style.

KDHX photography highlights: October 16-22

In the past week of photos Nate Burrell captured the essence of the hair flip with a little help from indie rock duo’s Mr. Gnome and Sleepy Kitty. The pint-size ferociousness of Melt Banana fit perfectly within the walls of Cicero’s and the Australian Pink Floyd show stopped by the Fabulous Fox Theatre and put not only shrimp but some classic rock on the barbie.

Blind Pilot opened for Brett Dennen at the Pageant but didn’t leave town without first making a stop by the Magnolia Avenue Studios to record a few songs and chat with DJ Allen Dahm of Bittersweet Melody.

Also at the Pageant last week was Matt Nathanson whose catchy rock riffs and comedic ramblings charmed the crowd. In-studios included a session with Trombone Shorty and Bobby Bare Jr. And finally, Harvest Sessions came to a close amidst sunny skies with the likes of Lliam Christy, Rough Shop and Scarlet Tanager.

KDHX photography highlights: September 4-10

The past week begins with a Monday night latin/reggae/shred session with Michael Franti and Santana at the Fox Theatre. Then all of a sudden it became Friay and as a result two photographers ventured West for the Roots ‘N Blues Festival in Columbia, MO while one went incognito to catch AUCW5 at the Firebird. Harvest Sessions carried on and blues photographer Rick Priest makes his deput on photography highlights with photos from Walter Trout‘s show at BB’s Jazz, Blues and Soups.

As summer comes to a close, Harvest Sessions carries on, the in-studios are still frequent and our photographers are as busy as bees.
