It’s a Fred Friction Frenzy!

While a recent post by Roy introduced the world to Fred Friction‘s new music venue, Fred’s Six Feet Under, the Riverfront Times recently posted a slideshow that highlights some of the heydays of Frederick’s Music Lounge. The RFT also has a nice interview with Fred by Christian Schaeffer in which he discusses both the new venue and his debut album, Jesus Drank Wine.

If you can’t wait until next week’s Fishin’ With Dynamite to get your Friction fix, just mosey on down to Off Broadway this Saturday for Fred’s CD release party. The shindig will also feature Raphael Maurice, the Dock Ellis Band, Charlie King (of the Asylum Street Spankers) and the always-elusive “special guests.”  Tickets are $5, and the fun gets goin’ at 9 p.m.

    Two pages in The Riverfront Times,
    A Sauce Magazine “Don’t Miss Show”,
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch “Best Bet”…

    jeez, I think the last time someone got this much local press was that Imos Pizza Manager in Kirkwood.

    Congrats on the new CD Fred.
