Like the weather, May's music calendar is really heating up -- especially Thursday, which is stupid busy.

Wednesday, May 7

Livery Company hosts a trio of talented solo acoustic performers: Mikal Shapiro (Kansas City), Eric Nassau (Columbus, Ohio) and Tim Rakel.

This starts at 7 p.m. and is free (21 + only).

-----

Ex-Plimsouls member Peter Case plays a seated solo acoustic show at Off Broadway (3509 Lemp).

Door at 7 p.m., show at 7:30 p.m., with a $15 advance/18 door cover (+3 20-under; all ages, but 17-under must be adult-accompanied).

-----

Stag Nite at Livery Company (3211 Cherokee) is headlined by the hot vintage jazz/blues sounds of Rum Drum Ramblers.

Also appearing are an act I haven't seen/heard -- the Carondelettes -- and blues-rock duo the Maness Brothers.

This starts around 9 p.m. and is $5 (21+ only).

Thursday, May 8

Barbara Clifford and the Shakin' Tailfeathers (Chicago) offer vintage rock/blues/jazz/R&B sounds at Blues City Deli (2438 McNair).

This runs 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is free (all ages).  Anticipate having to stand on the sidewalk to listen.

-----

Diesel Island
Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest)
7 p.m. start; free (all ages, minors only with an adult)  

An evening full of '70s/'80s country jukebox covers -- heavy on the outlaw -- from Diesel Island.

-----

Jangly pop-rock cult legends the Flamin' Groovies (San Francisco) appear at Plush (3224 Locust).

Frantic pop-punk outfit Bad Dates open.

Door at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m., with a $20 advance/23 door cover (all ages).

-----

If you prefer groovin' to Groovies, another legendary act -- the Original Wailers -- bring authentic Jamaican reggae riffs to the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill (6504 Delmar).

Unifyah, which now includes the former horn section of Murder City Players, opens with simpatico sounds.

Door at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m., with a $25 advance/27.50 door cover (21+ only).

-----

A healthy dose of roots/country sounds -- backwoods and citified -- will happen at Off Broadway, courtesy of headliner Al Scorch (Chicago), Jodee Lewis (Chicago) and Jack Grelle.

Door at 7:30 p.m., show at 8:30 p.m., with an $8 cover (+3 20-under; all ages, but 17-under must be adult-accompanied).

-----

If you prefer -- or require -- something easier on the budget, the Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust) hosts a show offering dreamy folk-pop from Spectator, happy pop-rock from FIRE DOG and a set from the aforementioned Eric Nassau.

This starts at 9 p.m. and is free (all ages, minors only with an adult).
