KDHX (and Collector’s Edition) was thrilled to have Gogol Bordello stop by this afternoon for a rowdy in-studio session and interview. Their tour rolls through The Pageant tonight, so head on down to the Loop!
Be sure to head over to the KDHX website for a first look at pictures and we’ll be back here later with more photos and a recap.
The amazing trio stopped by KDHX this afternoon for a in-studio session and interview. Here’s a quick preview from the session, which will air soon enough on 88.1 FM.
Treat yo self tonight and head down to Off Broadway to catch The Staves, hosted by our friends at Speakers In Code.
The LA-via-Texas troubadour, Ryan Bingham, dropped by The Pageant last week with the Nashville ruckus-rockers, The Wild Feathers. Feel free to cue up Bingham’s latest, Tommorowland, pour up another glass of whiskey and enjoy some pictures below from the evening.
In a slight convergence of comics and music (hey – it’s my blog, I can post whatever I want), legendary comic/graphic design artist Jim Mahfood stopped by Star Clipper Comics in the Loop for signing party for his new Everybody Loves Tank Girl release. Also with ties to the area, his brother DJ Mahf joined the event to provide a fitting soundtrack to the event.
Arriving in a wedding dress, Marina Diamandis (aka Marina and the Diamonds) skipped the ceremony and jumped straight to the reception party with a full crowd at The Pageant ready to celebrate. With a growing fanbase and stints supporting Coldplay and Katy Perry, the Welsh singer delivered a fantastic set of addictive dance pop, made all the better with her charming stage presence.
MATD brought along rising singer, Charli XCX, with an aggressive electro-pop set from her album, True Romance.
We last saw the California-based Yellow Red Sparks opening during ZZ Ward’s previous trip through STL, but this time the trio was headlining their own tour and show at the Gramophone. Earlier that afternoon, YRS stopped by Vintage Vinyl for a great in-store mini-set and meet & greet with fans.
As Josh Ritter took the makeshift stage outside of Vintage Vinyl for Record Store Day 2013, the applauding crowd was packed in tightly and doing its best not to spill out onto the Delmar streets. In a day full of great music across town, this was definitely the highlight.
