If you haven't yet heard, "Mikey" Teesdale, a sound engineer who worked mostly at Plush, died after a cardiac arrest this week. A sudden and tragic loss for his loved ones, friends and the local music community. Here are ways to celebrate his life with live music, as would surely be his wish:

Friday, July 25

Atomic Cowboy (4140 Manchester) hosts a pair of twangy acts on the outdoor stage -- country outfit High Fashion Kings and country-rock group Old Capital Square Dance Club.

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


JEFF the Brotherhood / D. Watusi / the Yowl
Off Broadway (3509 Lemp)
8 p.m. door/9 p.m. start; $10 (+3 20-under; all ages, but 17-under must be adult-accompanied)

JEFF the Brotherhood (Nashville, Tennessee) play a mix of rock sounds -- with psych, punk, pop and garage all in their musical stew.

Frantic, noisy, pop-/garage-tinged rock from D. Watusi (Nashville, Tennessee).

Potent rock with plenty of swagger from the Yowl.

The Trip Daddys
Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest)
9 p.m. start; free (minors only with adults)

High-octane, kinda-billy rock from the Trip Daddys.

Saturday, July 26

Today is predicted to be a scorcher; that's unfortunate, because a rare-of-late performance by country/folk/rock ensemble the Red-Headed Strangers at the Shanti (825 Allen) will likely be indoors -- and therefore smoky.

This runs 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. I don't know if there's a cover, but it would be nominal -- $5-ish (and 21+ only, due to the smoking) -- if so.


The Vendors of Substance -- a duo consisting of busy players Carl Pandolfi and Richard Tralles -- play a mix of covers and originals of many styles at Stone Spiral Coffee & Curios (2500 Sutton).

This runs 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is by donation (all ages).


Two quite different acts -- hard-to-peg rockers the Feed and breezy, synth-heavy pop-rock outfit the Sun and the Sea (Springfield, Illinois) -- both celebrate album releases at the Blueberry Hill Duck Room (6504 Delmar).

Smooth vintage jazz sounds from Tommy Halloran's Guerrilla Swing fills out this diverse bill.

Door at 7:30 p.m., show at 8 p.m., with a $12 cover (21+ only).


American News / the Hillary Watts Riot / Super ID
The Heavy Anchor (5226 Gravois)
9 p.m. start; $5 (21+ only)

Unknown sounds from American News, who state they play songs inspired by world events.

Tight pop and soul sounds that make for a funky, trippy cousin of Dressy Bessy from the Hillary Watts Riot (Kansas City, Missouri).

I couldn't find anything on Super ID.

DinoFight! / Ultraviolents / Ben Diesel
The Engine Room at Feraro's (7700 Ivory)
9 p.m. start; $5 (21+ only)

A fun, primal mix of punk/surf/rock from DinoFight!

Noisy, thrashy punk -- with a sax for some distinction -- from Ultraviolents.

Catchy pop-punk from Ben Diesel.

Your Humble Servant,
Dick Caveat
