Returning to STL after enjoying a stint at this past year’s LouFest, Alanna Royale brought a sweet set of blistering soul rock to Euclid Records before their evening show at The Gramophone. Check out their latest album Achilles, and be sure to mark your calendar when the Nashville crew next makes their way back to town.
The Icelandic singer-songwriter Asgeir held a lunchtime session at Vintage Vinyl to kick off a busy day in St. Louis (later performing at KDHX and opening for Hozier at The Pageant). With a chance to hear the young artist serving up acoustic renditions of his songs including “King and Cross“, a nice sized crowd ducked out of work and class to hang out with Asgier for the session.
Celebrating the release of So Delicious, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band included Vintage Vinyl as a stop on their current record store tour, with a huge crowd lining the store aisles to get some wicked guitar and washboard action.
The Halo Bar and Vintage Vinyl had the great opportunity to host Duluth’s Trampled by Turtles for a private performance for a full crowd ready to start their weekend a few hours early. The intimate 5-song session capped off with a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and followed with a line stretching the room ready to meet the band and get their copies of Wild Animals signed.

In total, I went to way less shows in 2014 than past years, but it was still filled some fantastic shows. In case you missed it, here’s a rundown of some of my favorite concert shots of the year.
