Grand Center bustled with activity Friday night. Within a two-block radius, Wynton Marsalis christened the newly remodeled Jazz at the Bistro, Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band brought back memories at the Fabulous Fox, and nestled just around the corner, tucked away on Washington Avenue, Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives held court at the Sheldon Concert Hall. As Marsalis is to jazz, Stuart is to classic country music: the music of myth and legends, too numerous to be listed.
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.
