The Magnolia Avenue Studios hosted hundreds of musicians, and over 70 different bands from all genres for 2013's Live at KDHX recording sessions.
It's been 15 years since the birth of indie rock band Okkervil River. As they settle into their teenage years as a band, their latest album finds their lead singer reminiscing about his youth.
Wye Oak opened the show last night at the Pageant with an indie rock sound best described as less is more. Performing with only two members, drummer/keyboardist Andy Stack and vocalist/guitarist Jenn Wasner managed to make up for a lack of band members with intense musicianship and a string of dreamy hooks.
On their latest album, "I Am Very Far," Okkervil River moves out with a new vigor from their signature folk-rock style. There's a renewed thirst for order in a chaotic cacophony, and the Austin-based band is taking that heavier and cinematically-precise sound onto the road once again. The band appears at the Pageant in St. Louis on September 20.
