7/24/09 King Thief, a local band from Saint Louis and two other bands, Makeshift Gentlemen and Sybris played at Cicero’s tonight on the famous Delmar Loop.

I am a huge supporter of a King Thief. Actually I’ve been a fan of them for over two years now. I first saw them at a Music Spotlight show at The Pageant back in March 2007 with Cavo and a couple of other bands. They definitely stood out to me. A few months later, I saw them play a set at Vintage Vinyl down on The Loop. After this show and countless others, I have become a die-hard fan of King Thief.

They never seem to let me down at any of their shows and tonight was no exception. Their cd, called The Inferno, is unbelievable in my opinion. Their music has this somewhat dark feeling, but that’s what makes it so good. It’s always so much better going to a show knowing the lyrics to every song and I can proudly say that I know all of their lyrics. Well except the five new songs that they played tonight, but I enjoyed them all the same. After going to so many King Thief shows, I was very surprised when a mosh pit formed. It just added to the fun of the show.

I also need to give props to the other two bands. Sybris, a band from Chicago and Makeshift Gentlemen, another local band from Saint Louis. I had never heard of either of the bands before this show, but both put on great shows.

If you’re interested in finding a new band, you should definitely check out King Thief.
