Over the Weekend: Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices, The Darkness
Good morning St. Louis.
Here's what went on over the weekend...
Robert Pollard at the Bluebird
On Friday night, Robert Pollard and the Boston Spaceships played a marathon, two-hour set at the Bluebird (41 songs and a thousand beers). Writer Todd McKenzie has a thorough recap of the show -- and you can feel like you were there with a killer slide show from the concert, including a four-page set list.
"One can always count on a few things happening at a Robert Pollard show. First, everyone in attendance will consume an obscene amount of cheap booze. Second, Pollard and whatever band he’s fronting will pack a staggering number of punchy, no-frills indie rock songs into a marathon-paced set. And finally, in attendance will be a core group of rabid followers who know the words to each and every one of Pollard’s 1,000-plus songs." Read More
On Saturday night, photographer Steve Truesdell went inside one of the country's scariest haunted structures -- for a few weeks in October at least -- The Darkness.
Here's what not-to-miss this week.
