Hear this Week – Live Music in St. Louis January 2 – 6
Let’s fulfill your New Year’s resolution of getting out and hearing more live music – to get you started, here are some Bands of Note:
Tuesday, January 2 – At the 1860s Saloon, Tom Perry hosts an open mic night. 9 pm, no cover.
Wednesday, January 3 – Thursday January 5 – The legendary Joshua Redman brings his quartet to town and you do not want to miss this mesmerizing Grammy-nominated saxophonist. Appropriately, he is in the serious listening room that is Jazz at the Bistro. Shows at 7:30 and 9:30 pm, $36.50.
Friday, January 5 – Relive the glam punk of the 1980s with that curious product of the Sunset Strip, Faster Pussycat. This tour is getting positive reviews so see them up close and personal at Delmar Hall. Doors open at 7 pm, $20.
Friday, January 5 – The Bottlesnakes are Nick Pence and Ethan Leinwand, and they bring their traditional piano and guitar driven St. Louis Blues to Schlafly Bottleworks. 9 pm, no cover.
Saturday, January 6 – St. Louis loves its tribute bands, and so Shakey Deal is here to serve up all your Neil Young needs. At Off Broadway. 8 pm, $12.
What the Locals Know: Not just a place to get a great finger lickin’ pork sandwich (though it is that too), our Blues City Deli features great locally-grown live music every Saturday from 1–3 pm. No cover.
Music Note of Note: At our own National Blues Museum, there’s an especially cool traveling exhibit, Kirk West Photography: The Blues in Black and White. West is a professional photographer who is showing off his extensive collection of photographs of Blues icons, including many images of the Allman Brothers Band, who have a local tie in: Greg Allman’s son Devon lives and plays here. Through February 4, $15.
