However, St. Louis’ very own Living Things took to that stage like they fucking owned the place last Wednesday night, and surprisingly, won over the entire crowd about 3 minutes into their set. But considering they’re fronted by Lillian Berlin, who appears to be the love child of Mic Jagger, Karen O, and hell, Axl Rose, how could anyone not be in awe of what they saw. It was pure, rock n roll goodness at its essence.
The best part – they popped up on that stage, without anyone even knowing their name. I mean, literally. It wasn’t advertised — heck, we didn’t even know there WAS an opening band. And that, to me, is the best part about music. It knocks you on your ass when you least expect it.
Get past the opening part of the video below and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Good Lawd!
