Even though Thursday night at the Firebird was a great lineup of musical acts, hometown heroes Bo and the Locomotive stole the spotlight.

Their act was refined to the point where they seemed like changed people. It was something you would expect from a band traveling long hours through the desert only to return home with stories of shamans and honed abilities to tune into special realms. They didn't share any shaman stories -- in fact there wasn't much banter from Bo at all -- but there was plenty to boast about. Their recent tour took them west and north, all over the Midwest -- namely to the Bunbury Music Festival and the Daytrotter Studios.

On Thursday night, their sound came together like never before. The carefree, loosey-goosey local band that we once knew had matured into a team of well-tuned musicians that would make St. Louis giggle with excitement when they call it home. Tour mate Netherfriends opened the night with a very amusing set, and even though the audience wasn't too in to it, Shawn Rosenblatt danced, jumped, screamed and fell to his knees all over the place, giving nothing but 110% for his opening set. Believers was supposed to open the night, but ran into the police on their way from Columbia, Missouri. Their set was well received by the crowd and they proved to be a bunch worthy of seeing again on their next stop through town.
