St. Lou Fringe 2014: The Hits

I have been a big supporter of the St. Lou Fringe festival since its inception three years ago.  This year I was out of town for most of the festival’s run (June 18-22), so I only got to six events.  Rather than writing a review of each one, I have decided put them into three groups: hits, misses, and flops (a.k.a. “I want my 45 minutes back”).  We’ll start with the hits.

Whether or not "My Daddy Rocks Me" is the first popular song to mention both "rock" and "roll" in a non-religious context, the tune remains a pre-War jazz and blues classic.

"Locus" effortlessly flows in and out of structural time constraints with the unlikely combination of cornet, balaphone and the Nintendo Game Boy. If you have any naive assumptions about the Chicago Underground Duo, they are most likely wrong.
