Water Liars @ Off BroadwayThis particular Thursday evening, Off Broadway filled with friends, family and new fans as the two acts with ties to St. Louis took the stage. Welcome back Water Liars and Angel Olsen.

Angel shut down all side conversations in the room as she offered up songs from her album “Half Way Home,” showing that a thoughtful and restrained delivery can still command a crowd’s attention. Her set is a photographer’s nightmare, where every camera click is noticeably heard, but I found myself just fine tucking away my camera after a few shots to listen in closely to her performance.

Water Liars went in the opposite direction, with guitarist Justin Kinkel-Schuster and drummer Andrew Bryant launching into a louder rock ‘n’ roll set and even luring out a few dancers to the venue floor. I missed out on Justin’s previous work during the Theodore era, but I think I might be perfectly content enjoying his current and upcoming material.
