Old 97's may come from Texas, and they may be a Texas "bar band" through and through (clad in the requisite cowboy shirts and boots), but last night, to everyone at the Pageant, it felt like they were home again. "When the sun goes down on [St. Louis] town / That's when I'll know I'm home." Right?

Published in Reviews

Last night the Pageant hosted a thrilling evening of good, ol' fashioned alternative country and rock & roll. Headliners Old 97's played an extended set to a crowded room full of loyal fans.

Fred Eaglesmith 2/11/11

Fred Eaglesmith is one of those rare musicians who can take the traditional themes of love, loss and heartache found in country music and give them a whole new life of their own.

Of all the bands who have played Twangfest over the last 14 years, the Deep Vibration is one of the most controversial. Not because it took the stage and preached politics (that would be another band), berated the audience (yet another band) or destroyed the backline (one mic stand fell over, not a crime).

It seems odd to describe an evening as "gentle" which includes a stomping interlude of quasi-southern rock, but that feeling dominates when recalling the night spent with Casey Reeves, Ha Ha Tonka and Rocky Votolato at Off Broadway.

The exact year is debatable, but shortly after the plug was pulled on the '90s, punkers had their genre stolen from right under ‘em. The Sum-182 mall brats were popping up left and right, and punks felt cheated. Some went along for the ride, some abruptly jumped ship and some took refuge with another genre that was deeply rooted beneath punk soil: country. Except, naturally, when a bunch of punks play it, it’s going to sound a little more distorted and jarring.

American Aquarium 9/28/10

American Aquarium creates heedful alt-country where piano and pedal steel guitar circulate along a background of steady drums and electric guitars. The Raleigh, N.C. band fuses its lyrics of heartaches, mistakes and forces of nature with emotionally charged melodies.

Webb Wilder 12/11/09

If Webb Wilder were a meal he'd be surf 'n' turf, with a super-sized side order of twangy, tangy polk salad. The King of Swampedelic Rock unplugged in the Magnolia Avenue Studios for an exclusive acoustic session on the Interstate.
