Bo and the Locomotive

Bo and the Locomotive will be playing at the Dude Locker this Saturday 10/23.  Show starts at 9pm.

From solo artist, to band guy, to producer, to recluse, Bo and the Locomotive has re-emerged from the city of St. Louis as a band ready to take over. They combine familiar tunes with off-kilter melodies, balancing on the edge of traditional and experimental. They specialize in making you feel happy, sad, apart, and together all at once, making the live show captivating, if not addictive. Bo and the Locomotive features Bo Bulawsky, son of two famed artists, who has written and recorded these songs over the course of several years. At the moment, he has many different individuals accompany him live.

Head over to and listen for a real treat!

Netherfriends is heading to Columbus, Ohio to play at the Dude Locker this Saturday, October 23rd with Steamboat, I Am Mute, and Bo and the Locomotive.

Emerging from the rooftops of Chicago in 2007, Netherfriends are that bastard-psych-pop-catchy as hell band that you’ve been searching for. They recently signed with indie label Emergency Umbrella. Their debut 6 song EP “Calling You Out,” fused heavily layered arrangements with group sing-a-longs, spare pianos, synths, glockenspiels and other hard to place, but familiar sounds. The three-piece psychedelic pop band grabbed some early spark and attention from places like Blender and RCRD LBL and have played at both SXSW in Austin and CMJ in New York City. Netherfriends features Shawn Rosenblatt (vocals, guitar, keys, drums, and samples) a freshly minted college graduate of music composition, planning to put his education to use from the road. At the moment, he has many different individuals play with him live.
