GRAND CENTER – Lo-Fi Cherokee hosted its 2019 Premiere Party on Saturday at The Stage at KDHX, 3524 Washington Avenue.
This premiere party served as the follow-up to the annual Lo-Fi Cherokee event in April, when nineteen bands and musical acts traveled up and down Cherokee Street with a video crew and eager audience to film individual music videos for each band in different businesses and venues in the neighborhood.
The event, which had its first iteration in 2012, is “a hybrid event that brings music, video, social media and St. Louis city culture together,” as the Lo-Fi website boasts.
The nineteen music videos premiered at the party. In March, The SouthSider published profiles of four of the participating musical acts: Soufside Jerei, Mother Stutter, Sorry Scout and Mammoth Piano. Other participating acts included Son Volt, Seashine and The Free Years.
Bill Streeter, who started the event back in 2012 and continues to run the event, said it was a great evening.
“It’s always a fun night, of course,” he said. “KDHX has the perfect room for this event. I’m very happy with how it all turned out. I think the bands are happy, too.”
As for Lo-Fi Cherokee 2020, he said, he’s “looking forward to doing it all again next year.”
Now that the videos have premiered, they will be released individually online twice a week over the course of the next two months right here on MetroSTL.com.
