Here's a Look at So Many Dynamos in the RFT Over the Years
2010 - The Dynamos returned to South by Southwest in March and were written of finally getting its own showcase at Emo's in Austin. "With new guitarist Nathan Bernaix in tow, the group just returned from its first trip overseas, where it played Scotland, Belgium, England and France. Writing (and hopefully recording) new music is in the cards for the band later this year," wrote Zaleski.
2010 - "Oh, the Dynamos. So adored, even after all these years (!)," wrote Diana Benanti. "We were sad to see guitarist/RFT contributor Ryan Wasoba leave the band, but the apparently seamless transition of new guitarist Nathan Bernaix (ex-Target Market) has us excited for its future." The band returned for another Music Showcase in 2010 performance, the first on Washington Avenue.
2010 - In April, the first-annual LouFest lineup was announced. Among the national artists (She & Him, Broken Social Scene, Jeff Tweedy) were So Many Dyanamos. See the 2010 LouFest lineup.
2011 - So Many Dynamos headlined the "Gringo Stage" at Cinco de Mayo on Cherokee Street.
2011 - We wrote of the band when nominated for a 2011 RFT Music Award: "It's been nearly two years since So Many Dynamos released its last album, The Loud Wars, on Vagrant Records. Yes, a prominent indie label picked them up. Yes, people outside St. Louis have now heard of them. And you know what? People here have forgiven them. People here even still love them. It's amazing."
2012 - So Many Dynamos is inducted into the ... wait for it ... RFT Music Hall of Fame.
2012 - Aaron Stovall spoke with Kiernan Maletsky about the increasing importance of collaboration and the value of living in the city of St. Louis. "No longer does it seem like band vs. band. It's more like band vs. the Internet," Stovall said in the interview, which previewed the second-annual St. Louis Arts Project.
2012 - The So Many Dyamos self-titled EP was one of our 50 favorite St. Louis records of 2012.
