Mayer Hawthorne’s return to St. Louis traded the large stage of the Pageant (where he opened for Chromeo) for the more intimate surroundings of The Firebird, but the young soul songwriter kept the upbeat production and experience of his live performance intact.
Welcome to Radar Blips, where I quickly highlight three shows that catch my eye. Go see a show and count down the days until the neighborhood pool reopens for the summer!
