The group out of Athens, Georgia was named by All Songs Considered last year as one of five bands that should be way bigger than they are.
St. Louis Public Radio’s Maria Altman spoke with Mike Mantione, the lead singer of Five Eight, Old North board member Doug Rasmussen (a big fan of the band) and Executive Director Sean Thomas.
The concert is Saturday at Plush, 3224 Locust. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Local band Last to Show First to Go will open.
