A haze descended over the audience as the lights rose over Yonder Mountain String Band on Friday evening at the Pageant. The night was filled with a groove that could be placed somewhere between the Grateful Dead and the classic bluegrass of Flatt and Scruggs, with country melodies and a musical muscle evident in jam-band circles. Dancers, drinks and bona-fide hippies took delight in all the sights and sounds.
If you're not familiar with Imagine Dragons, then you probably don't listen to commercial radio or have a 16-year-old child.
Valentine's Day may be the day of love and romance, but for those in attendance at the Pageant on Thursday, it was a night to get funky, with or without a partner.
The dance floor was packed, the lights slowly dimmed and silhouettes began forming on stage, creating a wave of excitement amongst the audience.
