ACT I

We are in a dark room in a nondescript building in St. Louis. As the lights fade in, we see 5 men sitting on a stage. They are HONUS HONUS, POW POW, CHANG WANG, TURKEY MOTH, and JEFFERSON.

Hailed as a guitar God to be, Tyler Bryant and Shakedown proved why. Thursday night at the Firebird was a special event as it was the first ever gig for Tyler Bryant to drop his name from the bill and played only as the band "Shakedown."

Even though the door was closed to the Firebird when I arrived Friday night, I could hear the excitement as St. Louis' Scarlet Tanager took the stage.

Touring behind their latest release "Life Like," Joan of Arc rolled into St. Louis on a bill that was as nearly full as the band's 15-album catalog.
