Hear this Week – Live Music in St. Louis December 18 – 23
Done with your Christmas shopping? Or just starting it? Either way, celebrate and relax or take a break from the stress, by hearing some great live music with these Bands of Note:
Monday, December 18 – The Jim Manley Duo again bring their invigorating instrumental jazz to Momo’s Greek Restaurant. An evening here is a welcome respite from the mall. 7 pm, no cover.
Tuesday, December 19 – Why not head over to Stone Spiral Coffee House & Gallery in Maplewood and sit in on the gypsy jazz jam? Headed by one of our town’s finest guitarists, Paul Davis, it is always a good time. You don’t have to play – listeners are invited – but it’s open to musicians of all levels. 7 pm, free.
Thursday–Saturday, December 21 – 23 – Powell Symphony Hall is putting on a concert of “The Music of John Williams.” Guessing Stormtrooper headgear is optional. 7pm Thursday and Friday, 2:30 on Saturday; $40–$80.
Friday, December 22 – If you don’t know about the Sleepy Rubies or Elliot Pearson & the Passing Lane, then get to the Old Rock House tonight and catch two of the best acts in St. Louis. Doors open at 8 pm, $10.
Saturday, December 23 – Fubar presents “A Winter Wonderland Concert” benefiting Toys for Tots and Ronald McDonald House Charities. Hosted by Don Dizzy & Sizzle, it features Lit Gang, Yung Jinx, Rich Trell, and others. Bring a toy and mark it for a girl or boy and for what age. 7 pm, $12.
What the Locals Know: Every Wednesday at Hammerstone’s, the duo Margaret & Eric play during the happy hour of 4–7pm, followed by blues with a Texas accent from our own John McVey Band at 8 pm. No cover.
Music Note of Note: Need to pick up some Christmas music to play with your family? You’re in luck, because Midwest Sheet Music, which houses one of the largest collections of printed music in the country, is based in Maryland Heights. It’s a great place to pick up a gift for that musician in your circle.
