Hear this Week – Live Music in St. Louis February 19 – 24
That eternal purveyor of surveys, Wallethub, named Missouri the 16th best state to be single in. If the rest of the state had as much great live music like our metro area, we’d first. Here are this week’s Bands of Note:
Live Music in St. Louis
Monday, February 19 – Our Webster University Jazz Collective, under the direction of Dan Smith, performs a special concert at the school’s Winifred Moore Auditorium. 7 pm, $5.
Wednesday, February 21 – The Firebird welcomes Crazy Town. This LA-based rap rock band will put on one of their typical great shows. Davey Suicide and Loaded Guns are also on the bill. Doors open at 6:30 pm, $20.
Thursday, February 22 – Annie and the Fur Trappers return to the Blues City Deli to dish out their spin on Dixieland and traditional jazz and blues. Tasty. 6 pm, no cover.

What the Locals Know: Seven nights a week you’ll hear great blues at the 1860’s Saloon in Soulard. Catch Tony Hall, Joe Lewis, Fred Pierce, Steve Pecaro, and so many other great acts who play here regularly. No cover.
Music Note of Note: Katie McGrath has been named the 2018 Bistro Award winner for best New York debut for her cabaret show, “Significant Others.” That show played in the big apple before she performed it here – her home town.
