New York natives the Slackers took the stage of the Firebird on Thursday night, accompanied by the Bishops, and locals the Rocksteady Flyers.

I had been anticipating The Slackers' return to St. Louis, and was far from disappointed with last night's show. In the four plus years that I have seen them perform, the band continues to make the shows exciting, enjoyable, and memorable. Thursdays' highlights included an encore that just kept on going; with members Dave Hillyard and Glen Pine jumping off stage and into the audience to accompany the chorus in a few songs.

As always, The Slackers kept the performance loose with requests filling their set, and making the crowd happy. As a few new tracks were tested out, we all hope to hear more from the Slackers very soon.
