As the decade comes to an end, 100 gecs, the musical duo consisting of Laura Les and Dylan Brady, close out their tour with a hometown show in St. Louis festively named ‘Gec the Halls.’ Laura and Dylan, who both grew up and met in St. Louis, announced their St. Louis date after their fall tour dropped, hinting to fans that they did, indeed, have something special planned for the city they hailed from. It’s no secret that December and January are the slowest concert months of the year, yet 100 gecs had no trouble selling out their show to take place on December 21st. By the time the night came, and everyone made it inside, people were ready for the show and 100 gecs did not disappoint.
The idea of a genre-bending seems to be an idea devised directly from this musical duo. A healthy mix between an energetic DJ set and a pit you would expect to see at a rock show, the whole night was high energy from start to finish. Whether you were standing off the side of the sold out GA pit, or directly in the middle of the madness, 100 gecs energy and freedom from genre seemed to engage the whole audience. Dylan and Laura seemed to have created something truly unique with 100 gecs, something that stands out admist the abundance of new artists and bands and sounds. Ending the night with ‘money machine,’ for the second time that night, there was truly no better way to ‘Gec the Halls’ and end the decade with a bang. With a debut album and a tour under their belt, 100 gecs is only gaining traction, so if their not on your radar now, they will be soon.
