Despite another wave of snow yet again covering St. Louis, Cults made it back to town for their evening show with The Pixies at the Peabody Opera House. With a few hours to spare in the afternoon, the Manhattan-based band set up shop at Vintage Vinyl for a full-band performance. Even though the bad weather had delayed the store for getting their copies of the band’s new LP, Static, getting treated to the new songs in-store was certainly a better deal.
The Flaming Lips’ frontman made his way through only five select record stores last week and Vintage Vinyl was a proud host of one of those events, as he showcased the band’s re-release of their first EP, amazingly displayed with a handcrafted chocolate skull and candy brains. The always-friendly Coyne stayed for hours to greet fans, but you can check out some pre-event shots after the jump.

Happy holidays! As 2013 is winding down, I’ve put together a collection of my favorite shots during the year that I hope you’ll enjoy. Thanks to all the wonderful bands, PR contacts, blogs and venues that made all of this possible. It still blows my mind thinking about all the talent I’ve been able to shoot in just a year.
In other news, you may have noticed it’s been quiet around these parts lately. We’re happy to announce that after a long wait, we’ve finally been able to bring home our new son from overseas. So while my camera might be focused more on him for the next few months, I’m sure we’ll still have some great things in store for this site in 2014.
Anyways, onto the shots!
Before their evening show at The Pageant, the men of Asking Alexandria rolled over to Vintage Vinyl for a quick meet & greet with fans. Be sure to check out their latest album, From Death to Destiny, and more photos from the event after the jump.
Running from work, I made it to the KDHX studios just seconds before the red recording light lit up, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the setup going into Basia Bulat‘s fantastic in-studio session (now available for streaming on the KDHX website). Fortunately, I was able to snap a few shots of Bob Odenkirk’s favorite musician, which you can feel free to check after the jump while you’re enjoying live renditions of “Tall Tall Shadow,” “Promise Not to Think About Love” and “Wires.”
Part performance, part Q&A, all heart. That’s how I’d describe the unique in-store put on by The Lone Bellow and Vintage Vinyl. I was bummed to miss their set at the Old Rock House later that evening, but the acoustic renditions of new and old material certainly made up for it. Enjoy some shots from their visit after the jump!
After seeing Escondido own the Off Broadway stage over the summer with Lord Huron, I was pretty thrilled to hear that Collector’s Edition had invited the pair of Tyler James and Jessica Maros (now with a full band) over to KDHX for an in-studio performance. The session is now streaming for free on the KDHX website and feel free to check out a selection of shots from their time at the station.
