Preview: Chris Cornell of Soundgarden at The Pageant, 5.21.2013
If I didn’t know better, I’d think Chris Cornell was mugging for the camera.
No complaints from me, obviously. More photos and thoughts to come.

Preview: The Hood Internet at The Firebird, 5.15.2013
Half of the production/mash-up duo known as The Hood Internet turned The Firebird into a sweaty, grooving dancehall last night. More shots soon, but in the meantime, download their newest mixtape and get your hips moving.

Sporting an upgraded lineup and correspondingly bigger sound, Via Dove took Off Broadway by storm.
Jon Hardy & The Public at Off Broadway, 4.12.2013
As Andy says, Jon Hardy and the Public may be the best-dressed band in St. Louis today. There’s something about the suits that speak to the band’s sound — it’s serious, grown-up, timeless.

Lera Lynn at Plush, 4.20.2013
Opening for Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band, Nashville native Lera Lynn brought a sense of style to Plush’s stage — donning a smart black jacket and stylish black hat, Lynn looked the part of the country-tinged singer-songwriter. She put on a hell of a show, too, performing with a joyful energy rarely seen in solo performers.
Her smile and wide-eyed gaze were a perfect fit with Ritter’s on-stage demeanor, too — he couldn’t have picked a better colleague.
Lera Lynn is on Rdio — give her music a listen.
Kodaline at The Pageant, 4.25.2013
Opening for The Airborne Toxic Event, Kodaline took to a stage piled high with monitors and haze. Lights shone from behind them, creating silhouettes where musicians stood — and painting the players with ultra-saturated pinks and purples.
No matter. The quartet was charming and earnest — Stephen Garrigan repeatedly reminded the audience of the band’s name — and their music carried the same appeal. Melories snowballed into anthems, not unlike early Coldplay. Check them out on Rdio here.
