Ludo @ Highline Ballroom

NEW YORK, NY—As the members of the St. Louis band Ludo ran onto the stage at the Highline Ballroom, the theme from The Neverending Story was billowing from the speakers. Not only did this rouse a cheeky smile as it stirred my brilliant childhood memories of Atreyu and Falkor, but it set up the quirkiness of the gig from the get-go. When it comes to this crazy group, however, it seems no theme song—no matter how wild—can really do these guys justice.
