David Bazan 

9 p.m. Friday, December 5. Billiken Club, in the Busch Student Center on the campus of Saint Louis University, 20 North Grand Boulevard.

David Bazan is still revered for his work with Pedro the Lion, the beloved indie rock band he lead through four albums and a handful of EPs. Upon disbanding Pedro, Bazan released one synth-based pop record under the banner Headphones, but quickly began recording and touring under his own name. This was the right move to make: Many of Bazan's songs sound like first-person confessionals and confrontational declarations. The five-song EP Fewer Moving Parts came out in 2007, and while fans are still waiting for a new full-length, they can sate their hunger with the new DVD, Alone at the Microphone. In concert, Bazan remains a funny, engaging and impossible-to-ignore performer, opening up dialogue between himself and the audience and making each show unique.
