This weekend is full of good shows and tough choices.

Saturday, April 5

Lemmons (5800 Gravois) hosts a show headlined by light-hearted string-band the Kansas City Bearfighters.

You can also hear a blend of country, folk and bluegrass from the Hobosexuals and country/country-rock originals and covers from the Red-Headed Strangers.

This lists an 8 p.m. start, although I doubt that'll be true. Cover is $5 (21+ only).

Red Mouth / Alley Ghost / Accelerando
Off Broadway (3509 Lemp)
9 p.m. $7 (+3 20-under; all-ages, but 17-under must be adult-accompanied)

Red Mouth (Florence, Ala.) is usually a one-man act that sounds a bit like Hasil Adkins merged with a delta bluesman; tonight, he'll perform with a band.

Alley Ghost returns to play its gritty, passionate rock for the first time since the tribute to its fallen leader Bob Reuter.

Accelerando offers a distinctive rock sound that resembles Highway Matrons -- which guitarist/vocalist Mark Stephens also fronted -- but with a less cacophonous vibe.

The Heavy Anchor (5226 Gravois) hosts a bill with a pair of intriguing touring acts: Atmospheric, anthemic folk-rock (that reminds me somewhat of the fabulous Monahans) from the Great American Canyon Band (Baltimore) and energetic, pop-ish rock (that sometimes sounds like a harder version of the fabulous B-52s) from Second Story Man (Louisville, Ky.).

Two local acts I haven't seen/heard -- Attics and Aristocrat Laundromat -- also perform.

This starts at 9 p.m., with a $5 cover (all-ages).

Two of our town's newer groups share a bill at Foam (3359 S. Jefferson) tonight. Unheard-by-me headliners Keokuk include two musicians (Curt Hendricks and Dominic Schaeffer) who hail from the the original punk/wave era, while also offering something unusual -- a mother/son rhythm section.

Also new to me, Longhead is the latest project for drummer Ron Leible (ex-Ransom Note). Tim Rakel will open, performing solo acoustic versions of his songs from the Union Electric, along with other originals.

This starts at 9 p.m., and is by donation (all-ages).

Sunday, April 6

Wayne "The Train" Hancock / Miss Jubilee and the Humdingers
Off Broadway (3509 Lemp)
8 p.m. $12 advance/15 door (+3 under 21)

Wayne "The Train" Hancock (Austin) offers just what's needed if you've got a Hank-ering -- as in Williams or Thompson -- for some vintage-styled country/swing sounds. It's honky-tonkin' time!

High-energy swing, rockabilly and blues sounds from Miss Jubilee and the Humdingers.

Your humble servant,

Dick Caveat
