When Trampled by Turtles last visited St. Louis, playing the main stage at LouFest 2013, I noted that I appreciated the fact that they stood in a row on stage, rather than in a cluster with one member taking the status of frontman.
LouFest returned to Forest Park's Central Field for its fourth year on September 7 and 8.
Seattle, thank you. You were sunlight and summer for three straight days, saving your typically relentless rain for the personalized autograph of a goodbye drizzle -- a little reassurance found with just a closer look.
Trampled by Turtles have become the road warriors of the post-bluegrass, neo-folk, Americana whatever you want to call it scene.
