This was my first full calendar year attending concerts for KDHX as a photographer and journalist, and it certainly helped keep me regularly attending shows.
Off Broadway hosted Steam-Powered Soul: A Tribute to John Hartford and KDHX Benefit on Saturday night. The event featured a seated early show and a standing late show, both of which brought capacity crowds.
Sneaking onto stage and straight into the set list without any warning, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound shook a few middle fingers at 2012 before we all shook our asses off.
If you stop to look around at a major concert or event in St. Louis, you'll likely see one of KDHX's many volunteer photographers, angling for the perfect shot.
On Saturday night Lola was bustling and full of life long before the music started. People came in dressed to impress with nostalgic late '90s style and quickly scattered around the club, filling every available seat shortly after doors opened at nine.
