THINGS TO DO
Yonder Mountain String Band headlines two St. Louis shows ST. LOUIS — Bounce into spring with two special shows Find interviews, video and at The Pageant Theatre with more at flipsideonline.com. the Yonder Mountain String Band. The breakthrough acoustic duo known as Brown Bird will be opening both shows Friday and Saturday, March 30 and 31. Jeff Austin, vocalist and mandolin player for Yonder Mountain, touched base with us on some unforgettable moments and future plans for the band. “St. Louis is one of the only cities we’ve done a New Year’s away from home. We did a show at Mississippi Nights years ago with Tim O’Brien in the spring. Those were great shows,” Austin said. He described working with different drummers on the upcoming album, saying, “We’ve worked a long time with a lot of other drummers from Futureman with the Flecktones, to Jon Fishman with Phish. Studio time with Pete Thomas is amazing, though.” Yonder Mountain String Band takes the stage in north central Illinois at the Summer Camp Music Festival in late May, and they will be hosting the Harvest Music Festival in Arkansas later this fall. — Matt McGuire
