10 to Spin | Union Tree Review + Bo and the Locomotive

Union Tree Review

If you've got a big toe halfway dipped into the pool of Saint Louis music, you know that Saturday is one heck of a big night. Yes, folks, it's the double album release party for both Union Tree Review and Bo and the Locomotive, two fantastic bands 'round these parts that tend to get a whole lotta love. In honor of the joint festivities, the bands have been collaborating quite a bit on promotion for their own - and each other's new records - and we've got some real special for you today in the way of a 10 to Spin.

Union Tree Review picked five songs that remind them of Bo and the Locomotive, and Bo...yeah, you get it. Vice versa.

But, before we get to the handcrafted, ten-song playlist, let's talk party. Saturday. The Firebird. Oil Boom and Pretty Little Empire will also play. $10 gets you in the door, but you can get BOTH albums (UTR's Death and Other Forms of Relaxation and Bo's On My Way) for the price of $FREE.99 by getting a ticket ahead of time.

And, if you can't make it on Saturday night, have no fear. You can get the new Bo and the Locomotive on August 2nd at all the usual online joints (Amazon, CDBaby, iTunes) and also in town at Vintage Vinyl, Euclid Records, and Apop Records. You can get the new Union Tree Review at the end of August at all their shows and those aforementioned online music shopping sites.
