Most folks have football on the brain this weekend, but for the sold-out crowd that packed the Pageant wall-to-wall Saturday night, it was all about the music. Fans lined up in the cold clear down the block for the chance to get down with Phish's fearless leader, guitarist, composer and prolific poet, Trey Anastasio, and his acclaimed solo band.
The musicians of St. Louis don't just love performing; they love seeing others perform. And the year 2012 offered hundreds of opportunities to do just that.
King of all jam bands, Phish, made its triumphant return to St. Louis last night -- its first summer tour stop here since appearing at the Fox Theater in 2009.
