Hear this Week – Live Music in St. Louis January 8 – 13
As the weather turns cold, the local music scene gets hot. The sheer variety of acts in St. Louis is outpaced only by the talent of the musicians who perform here. Get out this week and hear some of these Bands of Note:
Monday, January 8 – Once again at BB’s Jazz, Blues, and Soups, it’s our own Third Sight Band. This quartet incorporates Jazz, Funk, Soul, and Blues and purees it in into a pure Gumbo Goodness. 8 pm, $10.
Wednesday, January 10 – Local treasure Roland Johnson and the Soul Endeavor take the stage at Beale On Broadway. 10:30 pm, $7.
Friday, January 12 – At Delmar Hall there’s a very special concert featuring the music of New Orleans songwriter, singer, and pianist Allen Toussaint. “Yes We Can – A Tribute to Allen Toussaint” brings some of our best musicians including the Funky Butt Brass Band, Big Mike Aguirre, Emily Wallace, Sean Canan, and many others. Doors open at 7 pm, $10.
Saturday, January 13 – Nashville-based singer-songwriter Todd Snider brings his irreverent humor and thoughtful lyrics to our Sheldon Concert Hall for an intimate evening of music by a true troubadour. Rorey Carroll opens. 8 pm, $25–$30.
What the Locals Know: Every Thursday night at the Webster Groves Garden Café, there’s an open mic night that brings in our areas budding musicians, poets, and even magicians. 7 pm, no cover.
Music Note of Note: St. Louis also loves recorded music, specifically the good ol’ long playing records. We have over a dozen stores where you can get new and used vinyl. Two of the most popular ones are Euclid Records and Vintage Vinyl, both of which regularly host live music.
