Timothy Wagner works as a mixed media artist using a wide variety of media from found imagery to inks. All of the art is created on reclaimed materials such as vinyl records, wood and canvas.
Timothy's work is thought-provoking and a visual language that is an approach to expression of form, space and color, referencing our natural world and its surroundings. "The ambiguity of my work is created on a subconscious level."

FREE SHOW! Sinners & Saints is a two man band from Charlotte, North Carolina, comprised of singer/ songwriter Perry Fowler on acoustic guitar and harmonica and Mark Baran on upright bass, banjo and harmonies.Since the band’s formation in 2011, Sinners & Saints has been gathering a following of fans who turn to their whiskey drinking, sweet loving music for a good time but find something more – an irrepressible optimism even in dark times. Whether they’re crooning about heartbreak or tearing it up with joyful abandon, their acoustic, country-tinged tunes with compelling harmonies appeal to fans of classic country artists such as The Louvin Brothers to modern day Americana bands such as The Avett Brothers and Drive-By Truckers.The duo has shared the stage up and down the East Coast with the likes of Flogging Molly, Shovels and Rope, Robert Earl Keen, Dexter Romweber, St Paul & the Broken Bones, and many others.
Joe Boland of St. Louis' own "BLANK" plays a solo night of his originals and some tasteful covers. I going to drink coffee and beer. Not at once though. See you there.
For our 11th year, we are excited to announce that An Under Cover Weekend will present three iconic decades, over three nights, at Delmar Hall — the 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s on August 24th, 25th, and 26th, 2017, respectively.
Dubbed a “tradition” by the St. Louis Beacon and “the hottest cover show in town” by ALIVE Magazine, and routinely making local publications’ Top Shows Of The Year lists, An Under Cover Weekend has presented a decade of legendary tribute sets of an incredibly diverse set of artists, such as The Beastie Boys, The Four Tops, ABBA, DEVO, Eurythmics, AC/DC, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Rhianna, Fugazi, David Bowie, and LCD Soundsystem. Some of the sets performed at AUCW have even gone on to become popular local tribute acts, like the Street Fighting Band (Rolling Stones tribute).
Most of all, though, AUCW has set countless music fans on the course to finding their new favorite local bands. All of the bands that perform at An Under Cover Weekend actively play out and record original music in St. Louis. And, for our annual event, these bands take on the persona of a famous band for one night, in what is typically visually and sonically indistinguishable from that of the heroes that they are portraying.
Having already been housed in three beloved St. Louis venues thus far, AUCW has evolved tremendously throughout the years. Over time we have made many investments in helping to develop the bands that play our event — including coaching bands as they prepare, writing well-publicized band-centric announcements, providing professional photo shoots and recording sessions, and adding a massive light show — and the bands have responded by setting the bar higher and higher, with every set. Now, for both the fans and the bands, we are extremely proud to be able to bring Delmar Hall’s level of production, and the incredible vibe of the room, to the next iteration of An Under Cover Weekend.
Fans of the event have gone to say some amazing things about AUCW — “Another reason I <3 #AUCW, it’s like time travel, but cheaper.”, “Know this: AUCW is one of the coolest things in St. Louis.”, “Second to my wedding, the best night of my life.”, and “If record store day is Hipster Christmas, #AUCW is Hipster Chanukah.” — and this incredible support is what has kept us going, each and every year.
We hope that you will join us as we embark on this exciting new chapter for An Under Cover Weekend and look forward to creating amazing experiences with you for many more decades to come!
Submissions to play AUCW11 will be open from now until 11:59pm on May 7th, 2017 and can be submitted at undercoverweekend.com. Tickets for individual nights, as well as the 4 Hands Brewing Company 3-Night VIP Passes, are available now at delmarhall.com or in-person at Suite 100 at The Pageant.
