A soundcheck could be heard on the sidewalk, as fans of Kishi Bashi waited to be let in for Saturday night's show at Off Broadway.

At his last appearance in St. Louis, Kishi Bashi left a lasting impression, with many patrons purchasing tickets well in advance, and some traveling from out of state to see him live.

Proving to be the perfect pairing for Bashi, banjo player Tall Tall Trees opened. Although Mike Savino came as a solo act, he impressed the crowd with the modern sounds he created with his banjo, through the use of pedals and loops. Kishi Bashi joined Savino on stage for his last song, and got started quickly on his own set.

When Bashi took the stage, he had the biggest smile on his face, creating an infectious sense of happiness throughout the audience. The crowd was as close to the stage as they could get, holding their breath through the performance and hanging on to every note that Bashi played on his violin. The concert was unique due to Bashi and Savino playing together through many songs on both of their sets, taking advantage of touring together. The experimentation through the sets made for a fantastic live performance, and resulted in some of the biggest applause for an encore I have heard in long time. This was by far one of the best concerts I have been to for 2012, and thankfully Bashi promised the crowd he return to St. Louis again.
