I just can’t stay away from Vintage Vinyl and, its for good reason too. The special events/instores they frequently host are just too good to pass up. On a nice, chilly Tuesday night in St. Louis, the Leverage Models from New York stopped by the give everyone reason to funk it up. Earlier in the week I won a Twitter contest put on by Vintage Vinyl for ZZ Ward concert tickets. I had first heard of ZZ at a Vintage Vinyl performance a few years prior. So I decided to check out Leverage Models on our way down to the ZZ Ward show.

After a nice dinner my lady and I arrived on the historic Delmar Ave. right at Sunset. It is a beautiful diverse street filled with concert venues, food, and a amazing array of shops to suit just about everyone. We got in Vintage about 10 minutes late and I made a bee line to the beer table. Once again my friends and, unofficial sponser Schlafly Beer was on hand to provide adult refreshments to the 21 plus crowd. Black Lager tasted outstanding, Thank You very much Schlafly, keep up the great work.

The first thing anyone noticed about this performance was LOUD. Incredibly LOUD, even for this large size record store, the sound was in your face from the moment you stepped inside. After securing my refreshment I took a spot up front and watched the insane antics of frontman Shannon Fields.

They used a lot of funky futuristic sounds, auto-tune and various other instruments including a maraca and megaphone. They were very amusing to watch, I surely enjoyed it. After 20 minutes and a full sweat soaked shirt Leverage Models thanked the crowd and reminded everyone to check out the new self titled release which just came out last fall. Check the links below.

They put on a amazing show, afterwords we chatted for a few minutes they were very nice talking to. You should go check them out online, or even better when they come to a town near you. Many gracious thanks to everyone making this possible.

Thank you Vintage Vinyl, Thank you Leverage Models (safe travels) and a much love, very special thank you shout out to my unofficial (for now) sponser Schlafly Beer Saint Louis, MO (p.s SPONSER ME )

On a beautiful, bright day in the Delmar loop in Saint Louis, MO. Royal Teeth, a five piece band from New Orleans, LA stopped by Vintage Vinyl for a stripped down acoustic performance before their show at the Demo later that evening. They are on the road promoting their latest release ” Glow ” which is on Dangerbird Records and features the single ” Wild “.

It is always a wonderful feeling being at Vintage Vinyl, good times and a great staff that loves music as much as you! As a bonus treat, Schlafly Beer was free to those attending that were 21 and up. Schlafly has been brewing quality beer here in St. Louis since 1991 and they always have supported local music.

The band had been on a 30 plus day tour and was this was the second from last date on the trip. Still they looked, and sounded great as it was the first day out on the road.

They played songs from ” Glow ” as well as a few from their ” Act Naturally e.p “. Mixing in a few new songs and a cover the band played a diverse 30 minute set that lasted well into my second Schlafly.

The most undeniable thing about this group that I loved is they made it look fun. Which translated into everyone else enjoying the music that much more.

Last year they were featured on Last Call with Carson Daly as musical guest. Rumor has it they are booked for another national Tv spot on the 20th of this month on a prime time hit show.

Afterwords the band, the crowd and empolyees of the store all sat around chatting as if old friends. Some of us drank, others did not. Yet, everyone left feeling good and glowing with a smile.

Thank you Royal Teeth, Thank You Vintage Vinyl St. Louis, and Thank You Schlafly Beer.
