Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: August 20 – 24
Best first date? Take ’em to a live music venue. They will be impressed, especially with these Bands of Note:
Live Music in St. Louis
Tuesday, August 20 – This and every Tuesday this month at the Venice Café, Jeremy Segel-Moss plays the blues with a different special guest. 7 pm, no cover.
Wednesday, August 21 – At Yaquis on Cherokee, the Joe Park Trio plays wonderful jazz. 7 pm, no cover.
Thursday, August 22 – This and every Thursday there’s the “Sittin’ on the Porch Open Jam” at our distinguished National Blues Museum. Come listen, learn, and/or play! 6 pm, no cover.
Friday, August 23 – The Duck Room in the basement of the Blueberry Hill restaurant is a great place to hear a band, and tonight is extra special because the Summer Cannibals are playing. This rock band from Portland, Oregon, will likely play a bigger venue next time they are in town, so catch them now at this place. Doors open at 7 pm, $10.
Saturday, August 24 – One of this town’s most prized possessions, Miss Jubilee, is performing at Webster Groves’ Frisco Barroom. (Note: The band is now officially Miss Jubilee and the Yas Yas Boys.) They play hot jazz from the 1920s and 1930s. 9 pm, no cover.
What the Locals Know – Every year in Tower Grove Park, the world descends on us to share culture from every corner of our globe with the Festival of Nations. This is our region’s premiere multicultural celebration that includes over 40 ethnic food booths while offering up nonstop music and dance. It’s free, and happens Saturday 10 to 7, and Sunday 10 to 6.
Music Note of Note: It’s a return to school for many of our kids, but their education isn’t complete without music. Our area is filled with great institutions and local music stores that can get your kids on the road to playing classical violin or rock drums. One of the premiere educational facilities is the Community Music School. There’s also Mozingo Music, a School of Rock, Tower Music, and so many other great ones. (Psst … they all also teach adults.)
