The Mayans predicted the world would end this year. We don't believe it either, but we'll use it as another excuse to party at the City Museum for the 7th year in a row: Midwest Mayhem 2012 blasts off on May 10!
We asked you to "Put an (Andrew) Bird On It " for a chance to attend a special Andrew Bird soundcheck and see the show Thursday, March 22 at The Pageant, and everyone flocked to the streets to do just that.
Here's a contest that will make you whistle: we're giving you a chance to see Andrew Bird this Thursday at The Pageant and attend a very special soundcheck performance where you'll meet the man himself.
To paraphrase The Pixies: "HAYES! Been tryin' to meet you!" And that's what we gave you the chance to do -- meet Hayes Carll and attend his soundcheck, followed by his show at the Sheldon this Sunday, March 18 -- by writing a Hayes Carll haiku. A Hay-ku, if you will.
They used to shout "Boy, you ain't a poet -- just a drunk with a pen" according to a weary Hayes Carll on his tune "It's Hard Out Here." And just as Hayes went on to prove them all wrong, now's your chance to do the same. You might win tickets to the show, attend the soundcheck and meet Hayes Carll in the process.
At the intersection of music and perfume, your choices...well, your choices stink, frankly. "Fantasy" by Britney Spears is best used as some sort of anti-sex stink bomb, and we believe Justin Bieber's perfume was the perferred choice of particularly vicious Occupy Wall Street riot cops.
From being "Just another band from East LA" to winning Grammies and even playing the White House, Los Lobos has never lost its bite even after an incredible 30 years on the scene. And when they roar through St. Louis this Sunday, February 26th, we want to make sure you're there to experience it.
Our "What If?" Ryan Adams vs. Rhett Miller throwdown is over, and it was about as bloody, bruised and epic as they come!
Ryan Adams. The Old 97s. Is this town big enough for the two of them? On Tuesday, January 31st, these two Ravishing Ramparts of Rock...These Towering Titans of Twang...will both play Saint Louis on the exact same night! You can't be in two places at once, so which show would you rather win tickets to? It's time to choose your own adventure and get get ready to RUMMMMMBLLLLEEEE!
