This year the show was at the Diesel Concert Lounge in Chesterfield.

Alternating between two stages, six local bands performed in front of a packed crowd.

Psycho Circle, Through Our Eyes, Cybertrybe, Kaleido and Cadre shared the stage with Critical Bill.

Cadre actually closed out the show after Critical Bill exited the stage.

Psycho Circle kicked things off with a solid set of heavy rock that led rocking performance from Through Our Eyes that included a powerful cover of Evanescence's "My Immortal".

Through Our Eyes' vocalist Annette Bilek has a wide range that allows the band to try a lot of different styles.

Cybertrybe was up next with a set of indie music that unfortunately was plagued by technical problems but the band kept the crowd engaged and managed to work through it.

Fresh off a fall tour that included opening for Kid Rock in Las Vegas, Kaleido blew up the stage as they performed songs off of their current EP including "See Through" and "Jane" as well as some new unreleased songs.

Critical Bill fans are a loyal, enthusiastic bunch and the fact that the band puts on this free show every year always guarantee that they will have a packed house that includes a number of families out celebrating the holiday in style.

By the time the band hit the stage the crowd was more than ready for them and the fans got a treat as Critical Bill pulled out a number of new songs off of their upcoming album The New Eternal including new single "The Cure".

Mixed in were a number of the band's biggest hits from opener "Downtown The World" and "Favorite Drug" to "The Ride".

In between songs, the band's hilarious banter kept the crowd entertained as the rest of the band teased vocalist Powerdise about forgetting the set list.

Critical Bill closed things with their cover of House of Pain's "Jump Around" inviting some of the ladies from the crowd on stage but also inviting up a number of the young kids in attendance.
