Here are my picks for the weekend.

Friday, May 16

Bobby Bare Jr. / Brian Henneman and Kip Loui
Off Broadway (3509 Lemp)
8 p.m. door/9 p.m. start; $15 (+3 20-under; all ages, but 17-under must be adult-accompanied)

It's difficult describing the music of Bobby Bare Jr. (Nashville); he mashes all kinds of sounds together, resulting in -- pop-icana? Whatever it is, it's very, very good -- as are his bands, joining him here tonight, in celebration of the release of a new album.

Brian Henneman and Kip Loui bring a stripped-down version of their Diesel Island and Lookout Joe selections to open.

-----

The Heavy Anchor (5226 Gravois) offers a bill of garage rock from Strangefellas (Lebanon, Missouri)and surf-folk from the Itch (Joplin, Missouri), along with unheard-by-me rock from Runoff and the Stiffs.

This starts at 9 p.m., with a $5 (21+ only) cover.

Saturday, May 17

Chicago's Morry Sochat and the Special 20's bring swinging jazz and vintage blues sounds to Blues City Deli (2648 McNair).

This runs 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and is free (all ages).

Note: they'll also appear at Beale on Broadway (701 S. Broadway) tonight at 10:30 p.m..  Cover is $7 (21+ only).  The baseball game occurs during the day -- not a problem.

-----

A note about the next two shows: Taste of Maplewood is also occurring, which may make access/parking a challenge.

-----

Mellow country-folk from Salt of the Earth can be heard at Stone Spiral Coffee and Curios (2500 Sutton).

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

-----

Popular Mechanics / Mutts / The Union Electric
Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust)
9 p.m. start; free (all ages, but minors must be with an adult)

Pop-ish rock from Popular Mechanics.

Chicago trio Mutts have a gritty, blues-rock sound that's reminiscent of Black Diamond Heavies.

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

The late show at Mangia Italiano (3145 S. Grand) features art-/glam-rock outfit Tory Z. Starbuck Project.

This starts after 11 p.m. and is free (21+ only).
