Kicking off their headlining slot on Revolver’s Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour at Pop’s, Flyleaf dropped into Vintage Vinyl for an afternoon acoustic performance featuring new songs from their latest album Between the Stars and capping the set with a cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ Tonight, Tonight.
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.
