Baths Show Review

Baths The Firebird St. Louis, MO October 22, 2013 It had been far too long since I had seen a legitimate show, so I was more than a little excited to see Baths at one of my favorite St. Louis venues.  In general, The Firebird usually is kind of like seeing a show in your parents’ basement.  The ceilings are low, the lights are lower, and there are a couple of stray pinball machines.  This glorious basement effect was only

M83 Show Review

M83 Show Review St. Louis, MO:  The Pageant May 2, 2012 Much like Todd’s experience at Coachella, it is always difficult to extricate my personal experience from how good the actual show was, and review it appropriately.  Throw in a few drinks and some good friends, and any situation can be an absolute pleasure.  But a show review is not about how much fun I had, instead it has to be about how well the band performed, and I regret
