Philadelphia's Denison Witmer opened with a set of introspective tunes concerned with self-study and literary metaphors. After a few minutes of self-deprecation about his height, Witmer slipped into "Light on My Face" from 2012's "The Ones Who Wait." The track stood out as a meticulous ode to love and careful passion. Here, Witmer, with his slight nasal rasp, conjured the solo work of Get Up Kids lead singer Matthew Pryor.

The Delmar Metro parking lots surrounding the Pageant were stuffed with cars. I guess this is what the MTV Music Awards will do for a band like Young the Giant's attendance.

Hot off his newest release "The Ones Who Wait," Denison Witmer brings introspective, acoustic indie-folk to St. Louis' the Firebird on Saturday, March 31 in support of William Fitzsimmons.

The Firebird never smelled so skunky. Door guys scuttled around like roaches trying to bust concertgoers who were bold enough to burn one down directly before the stage. The timid among us were content enough to huddle in close for free smells.

The Gramophone stood oddly vacant when I strode into opener Andy Garces' Nintendo-DS focused set.

The house lights dimmed and a side door inside the Pageant opened. MuteMath bassist Roy Mitchell-Cárdenas' long, dark hair billowed, silhouetted by a dim overhead light.

With an album released last October and a new video for the single "Allies" recently posted, MuteMath has set its sights on St. Louis for a show at the Pageant.

Clad in Cobainesque red and black plaid, Tanner Merritt, lead singer of O'Brother, stood before a crowd of leather-wearing, hard-art-rock aficionados and pushed his falsetto voice into the microphone.

Cory Chisel warmed up the packed Off Broadway with a set of seven songs that conjured the lonely American countryside.

St. Louis band False Moves opened up at the Firebird last night with a set of skillful, pulsing, rhythmic tunes that featured two guitars, a bass and core-rattling drums.
