Hear this Week – Live Music in St. Louis October 16 – 22
Fall is patio weather, and a lot of local venues respond by featuring live music on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Get out and hear them, and these other Bands of Note:
Hear This Week:
Tuesday, October 17 – Why not head over to Stone Spiral Coffee House & Gallery in Maplewood and sit in on the Gypsy Jazz Jam?

Wednesday, October 18 – At Foam, there’s a special album release performance by Leadrs (COMO). They are headed out of town so come check out the live performances of their garage pop featured on their new album “Drift.” The Goes and Shy Fire open. 9, $5.
Thursday, October 19 – From Havana, Cuban, jazz pianist Harold Lopez-Nussa comes to Jazz at the Bistro for several performances through Sunday. The New York Times says he has “made his name as a small-group jazz dynamo.” 7:30 and 9:30, $26–$31.
Saturday, October 21 – Our Bevo Mill has been brought back to life and is now the place to hang out and hear great music (“Das Bevo”).

Sunday, October 22 – Take a drive out to Chandler Hill Vineyards and catch the soulful duo Arvell & Cheri. They glide through all the music genres seamlessly and have an infectious good time doing it. 1, no cover.
What the Locals Know – Every Friday at Yaquis on Cherokee, The Gaslight Squares perform. This traditional jazz band is a local treasure so check them out. 10, no cover.
Music Note of Note: When you think of music in St. Louis, “country” first – but we do mighty fine with that genre as well. In fact, our local country music ether WIL-FM 92.3 has been named “Station of the Year” in the 51st annual Country Music Association Awards. If that doesn’t make you want to get up and line dance, nothin’ will.
