The Point's (105.7 FM) Pointergeist show closed out the concert season for Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Saturday night with performances by Avenged Sevenfold, Deftones and Ghost B.C. And while heavy-metal fashion used to be defined by bullet belts, tight black jeans and generally looking like Lemmy from Motörhead, today it's just as much about the T-shirt you've got. Photographer Jon Gitchoff brings back these images of the shirts of the show, with headliners Avenged Sevenfold getting much of the love.

Bunnygrunt's Twentieth Anniversary Show: Review and Photos

In case you forgot: I gave myself the brain-crushing mission to make a show diary for every weekend in March. This is the third installment in my four-part project.

Like the rest of us, my party time was cut short this weekend by twelve inches of snow. I'll have to cover JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound whenever they reschedule.

However, Bunnygrunt rocked Plush for the band's twentieth anniversary before the skies spat on us, and the band brought some excellent friends along for the ride.

Weekend Round-up Review: SXSC Day One, Rat Heart, Bass Amp & Dan-O

Categories: Weekend Roundup

Bass Amp: Tiger-Beat style
All right, folks. Weekend two.

Recap: For the month of March (and possibly longer/shorter depending on my funds, stamina, and sanity), I am seeing at least three local bands each weekend. The rules: the shows must fit a budget (who pays more than $8 to see a show?), predominantly local bands, and well-supplied with tequila.

I suppose the aim of this column is to describe an average St. Louisan's show-hopping weekend, but I must plead in the defense of an entirely subjective viewpoint. I pick these shows based on what sounds interesting, and I don't even come close to representing all of the tastes and knowledge of the people of St. Louis. I suppose I would just like to demonstrate how many different experiences can be had within the realm of our city's music, and present a small sample of the adventures to be had between the other 9-5; that is, pm-am.

Howdy, folks. For the month of March (and possibly longer/shorter depending on my funds, stamina, and sanity), I am hitting three local shows each weekend. The rules: they must be on a budget (who pays more than $8 to see a show?), predominantly local bands, and well-supplied with tequila.
