Iron and Wine at The Pageant, St. Louis, June 13, 2008
Iron & Wine played The Pageant in St. Louis on Friday the 13th, 2008. Photographer Lauren Winchester spots two members of Sigur Ros, the Icelandic pop group that was in Kansas City on Thursday. Also included are photos of The Ugly Suit, the openers for the show, as well as the headliners Iron & Wine. Finally, Winchester makes a valiant effort to find beards that rival that of Iron & Wine lead singer, Sam Beam.
Sigur Ros was in Kansas City on Thursday. Laura Steel, pictured here with two members of Sigur Ros, were lucky enough to make the trek across the Missouri midriff and see them. Turns out the group had a day off and came to St. Louis to see the sights and hear the sounds. Small world.
Matt ended my beard search with a bang. I asked him how long he will let it grow and he said he gets that question a lot. He responded straight-faced with, “until my brothers come home from this stupid war!” I was so impressed, then he laughed and said that was not the case, but it really gets the people going. He said likes to come up with different answers every time.
