Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: March 25 – 30
Here’s a special edition of our blog for foodies. It’s a tribute to the great restaurants where you can enjoy dinner at a reasonable hour (not bar food at 10 pm) and great live music. We say show up hungry for these Bands of Note:
Live Music in St. Louis
Tuesday, March 26 – Evangeline’s is an upscale restaurant that is always hosting great local and touring bands. Tonight from Nashville is the Cosmic Collective, an ensemble of jazz musicians that create an unforgettable experience. 7 pm, no cover.
Wednesday, March 27 – At Sasha’s Wine Bar and Café, pretty much every Wednesday the Jim Manley Duo plays to patrons enjoying international-inspired (Greek, Italian, French) food. 8 pm, no cover.
Thursday, March 28 – Sure, Pat Connolly’s is an Irish pub, but every Thursday night they serve up local jazz talent with their fish and chips. Tonight Stephen Haake and friends take the stage. 8 pm, no cover.
Friday, March 29 – Odds Lane returns to Hwy 61 Roadhouse. This original blues duo goes perfectly with the New Orleans–inspired menu (Guy Fieri even did an episode of his show in this kitchen a while back). 7 pm, no cover.
Friday and Saturday, March 29–30 – An hour southwest of St. Louis is Wildwood Spring Lodge. Located in Steelville, it’s been a beloved family resort for generations. They host a concert series of pretty special acts, and few are as special as local heroes Head East. You’ll want to go early for dinner, but the concert starts around 8 pm. $130–$510.
Saturday, March 30 – With this restaurant, it’s in the name: BB’s Jazz, Blues and Soups. In addition to a great menu of Cajun-influenced delights, they have music seven nights a week starting at 7 pm or 8 pm during the week, and as early as 4 pm on the weekend. Tonight local piano great Ethan Leinwand and his friends start playing at 7 pm. $10.
What the Locals Know: The Shaved Duck has live solo and duo acts four to five nights a week. The local talent plays on Sundays at 4 pm, Mondays at 5:30 pm, Tuesday through Thursday at 6:30 pm, and Saturdays at 1 pm. So enjoy award-winning BBQ and Southern specialties at this Tower Grove delight.
Music Note of Note: We don’t normally send the presumed music-lovers who read this blog to the Science Center, but until April 14th there’s a pretty special exhibit—Guitar: The Instrument That Rocked the World. It covers the history and impact of the six-string and features plenty of options to do some strumming yourself.
