What the Locals Know: Kids love music too, and the Missouri History Museum knows it. That’s why they host a Summer Family Fun Series that includes “Music Mondays.” This Monday, July 10, is a special collaboration with We Stories and COCA, and kids and their adult friends will enjoy exploring the contributions St. Louis has made to music and dance. 10:30 am, free.
Music Note of Note: St. Louis is proud of its history of live music, and bands, clubs, and memorable concerts are documented on a fun site called stlmusicyesterdays.com. Local musician Greg Edick collects information, stories, and pictures from the 1960s to the 1990s. It’s a fun shuffle down memory lane.
