There was jumping, stomping, a sing-along or two, banjo solos, and a whole lot of soul-satisfying going on Tuesday night at Off Broadway. Langhorne Slim was back in town and St. Louis rejoiced. 

Langhorne Slim and the Law know how to get a crowd involved, apparently all it takes is a genuine passion for the songs you play. Easy enough right? The boys played a mix of songs from previous releases and a few new songs including "Past Lives" which was recorded in-studio at KDHX this January. The set list was diverse but also non-existant. After the show someone walked up to the stage and asked for the set list, to which Jeff [Ratner], the basist, said with a smile, "We don't use set lists."

John Henry and the Engine opened the evening with a set of bluesy-rock 'n roll that was remiscent of a young Springsteen. In fact, just as I was discussing the matter of "The Boss" with a friend of mine, another friend walked up and said, "Hey, does John Henry kind of remind you of Bruce?"
