It's frustrating to have all these great shows butting heads. To paraphrase Tina Fey/Liz Lemon -- I want to go to all of there. Something for (almost) everyone awaits.
It wasn't the case that no shows worthy of mention happened Sunday through Tuesday -- I just didn't have time to let you know about them. Here's the music mayhem I could get to -- a couple of very packed weeknights.
Thanks to a technical glitch by Yahoo Mail, a packed edition for this weekend that had been saved as a draft several times since Tuesday just went fully into the ether Thursday evening -- an infuriating waste of several hours' work.
This weekend isn't as crazy as most of late, but there are still more good shows than a person can attend.
You're killin' me, Saint Louis music venues! Perhaps you could take it down a few rungs on the "cool things to do" ladder -- I'm pretty sure we're working past that one you're not supposed to go above.
Before the picks, I'm sorry to pass along the just-heard news that Springfield, Missouri musical treasure Lou Whitney -- who has given fans decades of pleasure with both his playing in the Morells, the Symptoms, and the Skeletons (for starters) and his producing -- is having significant health issues.
A venue update first, then my picks: Apparently, the new Livery Company will not be offering music on a regular basis, which still leaves a more-than-robust music club scene in our town (and me with too many websites to review).
