Sadly, Sunday's Diarrhea Planet show at Off Broadway was just cancelled; they are (so to speak) quite a blast. After a few hectic weekends (and a very busy week), one that's pretty subdued becomes even more so:

Friday, June 20

Gazebo Park in Webster Groves (Big Bend between Lockwood and Old Orchard) hosts smooth soul-rock purveyors Ransom Note as part of its music and movie series.

Music at 7 p.m., with "Batman" (I have no idea which franchise flick this is -- they lost me a long time ago) screening afterwards 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 whether minors are allowed).

-----

Scarlet Tanager / Letter to Memphis / the Lovejoys
Off Broadway (3509 Lemp)
7:30 p.m. door/8 p.m. start; $7 (+3 20-under; all ages, but 17-under must be adult-accompanied)

Tonight features a new release from folkish pop ensemble Scarlet Tanager.

Laid-back country-folk from Letter to Memphis.

I couldn't locate anything on the Lovejoys -- may be a new act.

Saturday, June 21

Two Cow Garage / Broke Neck
The Demo (4191 Manchester)
8:30 p.m. door/9 p.m. start; $10 (+3 20-under; all ages)

Sweat-drenched rock full of grit and passion, served up with a twangy glaze by Two Cow Garage (Columbus, Ohio).

I couldn't locate any useful info on Broke Neck.

-----

Another edition of the Matt Harnish-curated Guided By Voices tributes happens at Off Broadway.

A Salty Salute III: The 20th Anniversary of the Release of Bee Thousand offers performances from Sleepy Kitty, Popular Mechanics, Karate Bikini, Tight Pants Syndrome, This City of Takers, Town Cars, Hum Drum, Trauma Harness, Humanoids and Matt Harnish's Pink Guitar & Friends.

Door at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m., with a $10 cover (+3 20-under; all ages, but 17-under must be adult-accompanied).

Your Humble Servant,
Dick Caveat
