With the release of No Coast, their first full-length album in 16 years, Braid took a momentary pause on their current tour for an acoustic set at Vintage Vinyl before their electric set at later that evening at Fubar. I missed the original hey day of the band, but was introduced to the quartet later in college through their Movie Music 1 & 2 releases subsequent to their initial split. Needless to say I was super jazzed to see the re-formed band and bring back some photos from the event.
The darling couple of Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis stopped by Vintage Vinyl before their evening show at Off Broadway and capped off the work week with some smooth country to go with the bottles of Schlafly beer handed out for the event.
Fresh off the release of their latest album, Tightrope, Chatham County Line propped up their microphone stand at Vintage Vinyl for a mid-afternoon performance.
Foy Vance has made his way through STL a few times (most notably with Ed Sheeran last time at the Pageant and this time with Needtobreathe), so it shouldn’t have been a surprise that an excited crowd gathered to hear the singer perform an acoustic set at Vintage Vinyl.
Featuring a trio of Dante Schwebel (City and Colour, Hacienda), Patrick Hallahan (My Morning Jacket) and Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma), Spanish Gold took the afternoon before their show at the Old Rock House to perform in-store at Vintage Vinyl. Their debut album, Out on the Street, is now out on BMG/Del Mar Records.
