On Thursday night, the Pageant hosted a bill that featured two excellent bands whose styles and sounds cover a wide range.

Yo La Tengo played last on the co-headline bill, and the band did not disappoint. With nearly 30 years of experience playing music together, Yo La Tengo's set was a collage of songs that at times were sparse, quiet and intimate, and then slowly built into howls and growls screaming through their amp stacks.

Calexico opened the evening and shared a set of songs that showcased the band's fine musicianship. With seven people gathered on stage, sharing and switching instruments, they filled the venue with a sound that doesn't come through St. Louis too often. There was a healthy blend of horns, pedal steel guitar, vibraphone, guitars and drums surrounding various beautiful vocal stylings.
