Here are my weekend picks:

Friday, July 18

Atomic Cowboy (4140 Manchester) hosts country/rockabilly act Trigger 5 for a free show on their outdoor stage.

This starts at 7 p.m. (no age info listed).


Another free outside show offers the soulful rock -- with touches of jazz and country -- of Brothers Lazaroff as part of the 2014 St. Louis Art Museum Outdoor Film Series (Art Hill in Forest Park -- which will probably be a big hill of dirt by this summer's end).

The music starts at 7 p.m., followed by the Audrey Hepburn film "Funny Face" at 9 p.m.


The Sidemen -- a jazz project that includes members of many other enjoyable acts (Swing Set, the Lettuce Heads, Western Satellites, Diesel Island, etc.) -- play at Maya Café (2726 Sutton).

This starts at 8 p.m. and is free (I don't know if minors are allowed).


The Gunshy / the Union Electric / Omoo Omoo
Foam (3539 S. Jefferson)
9 p.m. start; $? (usually donation of $5 minimum -- all ages)

Big, anthemic rock sounds full of passionate, Strummer-meets-Waits vocals from the Gunshy (Chicago) -- very impressive on recordings.

Folk-tinged rock with thoughtful lyrics from the Union Electric.

Happy-sounding electronica from Omoo Omoo.

Saturday, July 19

Kentucky Knife Fight / Ford Theatre Reunion / Media Ghost
Plush (3224 Locust)
8:30 p.m. door/9 p.m. start; $10 (18+ only)

Intense, twang-tinged rock from Kentucky Knife Fight.

Self-described "circus freak music" from Ford Theatre Reunion (Lexington, Kentucky).

Polished, heavy rock with a hint of blues from Media Ghost.

The Vondrukes / Bible Belt Sinners
The Engine Room at Feraro's (7700 Ivory)
9 p.m. start; $5 (21+ only)

Twang-inclined rock -- with a potent guitar attack and a Tex-Mex glaze -- from the Vondrukes.

Hard-charging rockabilly -- with powerful vocals -- from Bible Belt Sinners.

Scott Kay & the Continentals
Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest)
9 p.m. start; free (all-ages -- minors only with an adult)

A tasty array of rockabilly, swing and country sounds from Scott Kay & the Continentals.

Your Humble Servant,
Dick Caveat
