The Heavy Anchor played host to a simmer-down-and-listen type of show on Saturday Night. In a closely confined and intimate room, Frontier Ruckus put on a mysteriously inviting performance.

From upbeat stomping numbers to songs backed by trumpets, banjos and saws, they spun a set that displayed their fine musicianship, as well as their penchant for writing lyrical stories that any wordsmith would enjoy.

St. Louis-based trio Trotting Bear opened the evening with a very mellow set that featured their various takes on folk-inspired music. With vocals, guitars, and banjos as the foundation of many songs, they also mixed in electric guitars, one drum and keys, giving a percussive and subtly hypnotic feel to their sound.
