Great Moment In AUCW History: Robb Steele as The Beastie Boys (2007) #RIPMCA

by Mike Tomko on May 4, 2012 Posted In: 2012, Blog

When I was setting up the submission form for AUCW6 a few weeks ago, I was reminded of the fact that the 10 artists covered in our first year were now eligible to be covered again — and I found myself feeling somewhat defensive about this fact. The defensiveness comes from a strong desire to protect the amazing job that those first 10 bands did over 5 years ago. This was also the point where I began to remember how…

It is has been a week since the close of An Under Cover Weekend 5 and somehow that has been barely enough time to recover from the amazingness brought to The Firebird by 10 of St. Louis’ best bands. This post may be slightly belated, but for those who were there, 2 straight nights of AUCW is a lot for the brain to process. And with the closing notes of Troubadour Dali’s set, most were left feeling like they weren’t…

In Review: An Under Cover Weekend 5, Night 1

by Mike Tomko on September 10, 2011 Posted In: 2011, Blog

We should be so proud of our city. Last night, 5 of the best bands in St. Louis showed up on The Firebird’s doorstep and dropped off a supreme display of musicianship, passion, talent and excitement, many months in the making. With a night so chock-full of amazing moments, it is incredibly hard to identify the “highlights” of the evening. But nevertheless, I will try to knock out a few notable bullet points from Night 1. – You can also…
