It may seem counter intuitive to imagine a crowd at Off Broadway sitting cross-legged on the bar floor quietly listening to performers sing, but that is exactly what happened when Mountain Man graced the stage last night.
Bright Eyes took the Pageant stage in front of a sold-out crowd last night. Technicolor lights and Conor Oberst's undeniable stage presence held the set together as fans pumped their fists and sang along, song after song. Dawes opened the evening with a solid set and no doubt won some new fans by the end.
Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler, founding members of Over the Rhine, delighted the Tuesday night crowd at Old Rock House with a generous 75 minute set filled with their songs and anecdotes about their life in Ohio.
Off Broadway hosted an incredible two band bill that left me wishing that more St. Louisians had made it out on a Tuesday night.
