"Is it a fucking Tuesday night in St. Louis?!" howled Saint Motel point man A/J Jackson before the band busted into "Daydream/Wetdream/Nightdream." A proper answer was weeded out with a quick glance towards the nearest iPhone. Jackson needed no response, but the question was fair.
I had the pleasure of attending scores of shows in St. Louis this past year. Here are my top picks for the best shows of 2014.
Waylon Albright "Shooter" Jennings, rolled into St. Louis on Saturday night, bringing with him a history of country music bigger than his own stature. Doors opened at 7 p.m. with opening acts setting the stage for Jennings' later performance.
On a music-related note: "20,000 Days On Earth" -- a film about dark rocker Nick Cave -- screens as part of Webster University's film series through Sunday. More info here.
