Company of Thieves was back at Off Broadway Friday night, this time with a much more intimate show.

Marc and Genevieve started writing together at open mics around Chicago and wanted to try their new material the same way that made them the undeniably awesome duo they are today. They were able to play Company of Thieves classics that they usually overlook with their band.

In the same spirit, they used gigg.com for an open mic style tournament to decide the openers for their shows, a great way for touring bands to support the local scene in each city. St. Louis' winners were duo Jenna Jackley and Ryan Haines followed by Allie Wehrsten and Anthony Trevaskis.

Touring with Company of Thieves was von Grey, a group of four multi-instrumentalist sisters. von Grey produces its bass chords and drums electronically and also utilizes a vast array of classical string and folk instruments, creating a sound described as "hobbit rock" by one of their fans.

Company of Thieves addressed the open mic show as a way to break down barriers between the audience and themselves. A seated open mic performance quickly transformed into the standing, soulful set we were all hoping for. Without the band, Genevieve's vocals were front and center. Lyrics came alive as they played old favorites along with some newer, unreleased songs. Genevieve promised that they will be releasing new music soon -- in her words, "hopefully this year." Afterwards, they hung around to talk to fans and sign autographs, closing the evening with a totally acoustic performance of "Won't Go Quietly" behind the merch table. St. Louis hopes to see you again soon, Marc and Gen.
