Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: February 18 – 23

Monday February 18, 2019

The weather this time of year is unpredictable … blizzard? 60 degrees? Who knows. But what is predictable is the great live music around town. Let’s start with these Bands of Note.

Live Music in St. Louis

Monday, February 18 – Rapper Travis Scott comes to the Enterprise Center for his “Wish You Were Here” tour. Sheck Wes is the opener. 8 pm, $26–$96.

Wednesday, February 20 – The enchanting Miss Jubilee and the Humdingers play at Schlafly Bottleworks. 8 pm, no cover.

Thursday, February 21 – Remember the Gin Blossoms? They are still around and coming to Delmar Hall to perform their brand of “jangle pop.” Punchline opens. 8 pm, $85.

Friday, February 22 – Like country? The Liuna Event Center in Sunset Hills is putting on a Pure Country show. We’re talkin’ line dancing, the whole nine yards. Music by the Well Hungarians, Greg Manis, Todd Jones, and Russ Kasper. Doors open at 7 pm, $10.

Saturday, February 23 – The quaint and comfortable Webster Groves Garden Café is home to a lot of great live music, and this Saturday night the Yard Darts return. This trio of multi-instrumentalists play rock hits from the 1970s-1990s that you rarely hear, usually in unexpected versions. 7 pm, no cover.

What the Locals Know: The newer and appropriately named Fiddlehead Fern Café in the Shaw neighborhood has a Bluegrass Brunch every Sunday, 12-2 pm. No cover. This Sunday it’s with the Mighty Pines.

Music Note of Note: If you can guess what important instrument Belgium-born Adolphe Sax (1814–1894) invented, then you’ll want to know about Saxquest. Not just a music instrument store in a cool part of town (Cherokee Street), it also features a museum of saxophones (including several Mr. Sax made himself). Fascinating, wonderful, and a little bonkers, this little-known hidden treasure is worth a visit.
