St. Louis native and MU330 frontman Dan Potthast opened the night and got the band back together for a special set. After starting as a solo act for the first four or five songs, Potthast pulled his MU330 mates into the mix to rile up the crowd, including a young budding guitarist named Kaleb who was singled out of the crowd to help out on a tune.
Pilfers took the stage next, continuing the great interaction with the crowd and keeping everyone bouncing. Reel Big Fish finished off the night with more manic on-stage antics, set to the melodies of their older hits and newer works, all of which received the sing-along treatment from those in the crowd. All three bands remarked on the cold weather outside, but they certainly kept everyone hot inside the venue.
