It's always a pleasure to have our friends in the Soil and the Sun roll into town in their refurbished classic bus (with their delightfully good music and gobs of instruments in tow, of course). The incredibly talented, West Michigan based group played at Plush here in St. Louis before heading down to SXSW in Austin, TX. In case I have trouble planning my Friday evenings in the future, the combo of live music, good friends, and Urban Chestnut Winged Nut is pretty much the bee's knees. Noted. Seriously though, we love watching these guys live. There's something intense yet graceful about hearing a seven member band play together so well. At the risk of using a corporate buzzword, they are a perfect example of synergy. Andy toted along our spanking new 50mm f/1.2 (yes, it is wonderful and I don't know how we lived without it) and caught these lovely images. Sending our best to Soil and the Sun on the rest of their tour!
