Three St. Louis local favorites plus one from Texas filled the Firebird to capacity with hungry fans Saturday night. 

Pretty Little Empire kicked off the show and got the crowd dancing and singing along. Following them was Oil Boom, a band from Texas, who was well received by the crowd.

By the second half of the show the Firebird was packed wall to wall in anticipation of the next two bands, Union Tree Review and Bo and the Locomotive, who were both celebrating the release of their new albums.

Bo and the Locomotive played a selection of new songs from their album entitled On My Way, and did not disappoint. Bo engaged the crowd by stepping off of the stage and into the masses during the first song. At the end of their set, Bo received a pie in the face by fellow band mate Andy Arato, then segued into a Miley Cyrus song.

Last but not least was Union Tree Review, who ended the night by playing through their entire album, "Death & Other Forms of Relaxation." As always, there was a lot of foot-stomping, hand clapping, and standing on drums. During their song, "Misery," they even handed out song lyrics to the crowd who sang along. As they left the stage, the crowd screamed for one more song. Bo and the Locomotive were invited to join them on stage and the night was ended with "Clouds."

Tower of Song: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen and 80th Birthday Party Leonard Cohen started out as a poet, and poetry -- ecstatic, spiritual, erotic and political -- suffuses all of his work. When he launched a career as a songwriter and singer in the '60s, only Bob Dylan could match his visionary...
