Upon entering the parking lot of the Firebird Friday night, there was an unexpectedly large amount of people, and a long line that reached clear out the door and into the lot.

St. Louis knew they were in for a special show, with Freelance Whales and Geographer performing. Geographer's Mike Deni seemed to send a wave of energy into the audience as he and fellow musicians Nathan Blaz and Brian Ostreicher played through their set with synthesizer, electric cello, drum and delay pedals in tow. It seemed that just as many people came to see Geographer as came to see popular indie rockers Freelance Whales, showing a perfect pairing for the night.

Seeming to barely fit on stage with all their equipment, Freelance Whales -- a quintet hailing from Queens, N.Y. -- excitedly began their set, with member Doris Cellar skipping to her place on stage. The crowd pushed forward, leaving anyone wanting to enter or exit out of luck for the duration of the night. The show was great at the Firebird, but I predict that after such a packed show they will hit a bigger venue next time through.
