It was a revival, and even if the house was not packed, it was definitely rocking.

An undeservedly sparse crowd at Off Broadway was treated to an intense evening of music on Saturday, February 16. Leading off the evening with twang and swagger was Melody Den. Marc Chechik fronts the country-leaning rock act, which delivered songs from the recent album "Storylines" and the band's previous self-titled effort.

Grabbing the 10 p.m. spotlight was the night's biggest surprise: Luella and the Sun. The Nashville foursome is a southern-fried sensation, equal parts gospel and backwoods rock. With a standout vocal sound tinged with a hint of the Grand Ole Opry, the band had the audience out of their seats and stomping the floor. The late-night finale was a frantic, high-decibel set from Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost. The KDHX DJ, local author and music guru (backed by a great four-piece outfit) channeled the energy of South Saint Louis to melt a few faces before the night was over.
