Everyone is on Twitter these days. The Dalai Lama is on Twitter. Several presidents (along with presidential hopefuls) are on Twitter. Your professors, bosses, cousins, and best friend's boyfriend's aunt's Zumba instructor are all on Twitter. It's the perfect microblogging platform for getting your message across - especially if you are an up and coming band.
Saint Louis is filled to the brim with new and rising bands, so it makes sense that most of them are on Twitter. Whether it's to advertise upcoming gigs, promote new singles, reach out to fans, or just have fun, these bands are using Twitter to their advantage.
So many bands worth following. Where do you begin? Here are some of the bands of Saint Louis who are blowing up Twitter in the best way possible.
Dots Not Feathers
Dots Not Feathers is reaching larger audiences every day, having just recently performed at the Middle Of The Map Fest this month. Vocalist Stephen Baier, who runs the group's Twitter, keeps it regularly updated with concert photos, gig dates, and fun looks into the band's everyday life.
Call In Artillery
Chris Schwan aka Call In Artillery is a very active Twitter user and is constantly representing his band on the site. He's currently in the Warped Tour Battle of the Bands for a chance to get a shot performing on stage during the tour. If you tweet him, he will retweet it; he has nothing but love for his fanbase.
Brookroyal is a rocking local band and there's no doubt at all that this group is Saint Louis based. They regularly tweet about Blues and Cards games and support STL alternative radio. There's little more Saint Louis than that. Petition to let Ballpark Village hold a concert there!
Bruiser Queen is definitely a rock duo worth listening to. They seem to be always on tour, giving shows for crowds of loyal fans, and they have recently released a new album. And once you follow them on Twitter and see them live, you'll become a fan too.
Of all the bands on this list, Greek Fire is the number one band skyrocketing to a national stage. With their songs being played on radio stations across the country and a new EP on the way, it's never too late to jump on Greek Fire as the next big thing. What's great about them is that they never forget their fans or where they've come from; their Twitter feed is a ever expanding love letter to the people who have supported them since the beginning. Between updates on their new music video and EP and the band's amusing Instagram posts, it's no wonder Greek Fire has almost 20k followers already.
