Serving up a cocktail of grunge-infused rock 'n' roll with a dash of swampy twang, Deer Tick assured fans at the Firebird that Monday morning was no reason to hold back on a Sunday night.

Since its self-titled release in 2009, Seattle's the Head and the Heart has earned the adoration of fans and critics alike for crafting vulnerable, indie-folk sing-alongs.

Trampled by Turtles have become the road warriors of the post-bluegrass, neo-folk, Americana whatever you want to call it scene.

After a dreary weekend in St. Louis, Charles Bradley arrived with a surplus of soulshine Sunday night at the Old Rock House.

The Raveonettes 9/28/12

Streaming Audio

Seeing a lone bird soaring overhead on a gloomy day may cause sentimental thoughts regarding the glory of owning wings to sink slowly into the pavement. Similarly, a sense of defeatism battling thoughts of grandeur shines through the music of the Raveonettes.

The towering glass double doors at Plush which separate the music venue from the restaurant offered an entrance to a time machine. Everything appeared to be normal, but as the canned sounds of classic R&B and rock 'n' roll poured from the speakers above, a gradual, hypnotic wash began to fall over all within earshot.

Heavy drumbeats pulsated from the outside walls of Plush as early-bird fans filled the restaurant lobby. Standing beneath a chandelier of transparent leaves glowing pink and purple, they glimpsed the final moments of Yellow Ostrich's soundcheck.

Down the stairs and past the bar, a screen on the Duck Room stage displayed a jerky psychedelic image resembling a collage of contorted faces.

St. Louis music fans of all stripes gathered at the City Museum for Midwest Mayhem on Thursday evening to celebrate with the city's independent radio station, 88.1 KDHX.

The Head and the Heart brought an abundance of sing-along sunshine from Seattle to St. Louis on Sunday night at the Pageant. Joyful attendees stomped, clapped and swayed along to the sweet folk-rock and harmonies offered throughout the evening.
