Audiences at the beautiful Peabody Opera House were treated to a brief escape from the winter's chill in St. Louis with a warm and inviting production of "Man of La Mancha" from Chasing Windmills LLC. The cast is strong throughout and the story an interesting and engaging interpretation of Cervantes life, as well as his most famous tale.
Pixies aren't the same without Kim Deal, or so I've heard from many music fans in the weeks leading up to the return to St. Louis of the pioneers of American alternative rock.
On February 6, the Pixies will ride a wave of mutilation right through the Peabody Opera House (with Cults supporting), and we want you to be there to see it. We're giving away two pairs of tickets for a little monkey business on your part.
This past year, my concert schedule started with a frantic pace, but then unfortunately dwindled away a bit due to increasing limitations on time and finances.
"Godspell" rocked the Peabody Friday night with all the explosive subtlety of a fireworks display. The 2013 incarnation of the 1970's rock sensation burst onto the stage, a suname of sound and color and beautifully pure rock.
Prepare your weird tribal makeup, hair feathers and neon what-zits: MGMT is coming to St. Louis, playing the Peabody Opera House on Tuesday, November 12th. And we want to send you there.
Irony is the last refuge of the contrarian rock star, and Steely Dan has made an art form of the sneer and the swerve. No one captured the shattered ennui of the '70s like Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, with music that rode between rock and jazz and with lyrics that dripped irony and were derived from the detachment of seeing the world through drug-colored glasses.
Middle ground doesn't exist when it comes to Bob Dylan shows. The response is either, "I can't believe I walked six blocks in the rain for this," or "I have printed set lists from every show he's played in the past five years! Do you want to see them?" I overheard both of those snippets within seconds of standing among the rain-besotted crowd in the Peabody's lobby.
Widespread Panic has an uncommon style of set creation show by show, touring extensively but never repeating a set, which was likely much more difficult before they had produced more than 11 studio albums worth of original music across over a quarter of a century.
