It's not just tasty music in this edition -- except for the first show listed, every venue offers options to chow down while you get down with some fine acts:

Friday, August 1

Fans of outlaw country cover-masters Diesel Island can catch them in an intimate, quieter atmosphere when they take to the stage at the Focal Point (2720 Sutton).

This starts at 8 p.m. (no door time listed -- I'm sure it opens at least 30 minutes before), with a $10 advance/15 door cover (all ages).

Advance tickets through this link.


Livery Company (3211 Cherokee) hosts an evening of powerhouse vocalists and food, headlined by soul singer Roland Johnson.

Also appearing are soul-stress Raye Cole and rockabilly act Bible Belt Sinners.  The organization Food Not Bombs will be selling BBQ on the patio to raise funds.

This starts at 9 p.m., with a $7 cover (21+ only).


Jedi Nighties / the Carondelettes / Fat Tramp Food Stamp
Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust)
9 p.m. start; free (all ages, but minors must be with an adult)

A recently revamped roster for Jedi Nighties, who now have a more sensual, '70s rock sound than their previous '60s pop-rock one.

Raucous, garageish rock from the Carondelettes.

Fat Tramp Food Stamp offer a distinctive mix of hard rock, blues, country and bluegrass sounds.

Saturday, August 2

Off Broadway (3509 Lemp) hosts the Funky Butt Brass Band Fish Fry, which will feature fried catfish, coleslaw and cornbread to go with some funky, New Orleans second-line-styled sounds.

Door at 6:30 p.m., show at 7 p.m., with a $7 cover (+3 20-under; all ages, but 17 and under must be adult-accompanied) that includes food.


The Washington Beach Bums / Chill Dawgs / Vanilla Beans / Bassamp & Dano
The Heavy Anchor (5226 Gravois)
9 pm. start; $5 (21+ only)

Punk-/pop-ish party rock from the Washington Beach Bums (Columbus, Ohio).

Similar sounds from Chill Dawgs.

Upbeat electro-pop from Vanilla Beans.

Energetic punk-pop from Bassamp & Dano.

Swing DeVille
Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest)
9 p.m. start; free (minors only with adults)

Fans of western swing or jazz artists like Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli will dig Swing DeVille -- sweet sounds from players with serious chops.

Your Humble Servant,
Dick Caveat
