Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: November 5 – 11
Election day of 2018 is finally here. Make sure you go vote on Tuesday. Then vote to support great St. Louis live music, which you can do 365 days a year. Here’s a sample ballot of your Bands of Note:
Live Music in St. Louis
Monday, November 5 – Ms. Lauryn Hill is back on the road celebrating the 20th anniversary of her Grammy-winning “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” album. Shabazz Palaces and Patoranking are also on the bill. At the Chaifetz. Doors open at 6 pm, $49.50–$199.99.
Tuesday, November 6 – VOTE! Then reward yourself by going to see Christina Aguilera’s Liberation Tour at the Stifel Theatre. Her show starts at 8, an hour after polls close, so there’s no excuse to not do both. $26–$156.
Wednesday, November 7 – Get down to the Dark Room at the Grandel and catch the Kasimu-Tet. Local trumpeter Kasimu Taylor and his trio just keep getting more interesting as they explore jazz old and new. 9 pm. No cover.
Saturday, November 10 – Did you miss Fleetwood Mac when they were in town last week? Well, head to the Kirkwood Station Brewing Company and catch Big Love, a local Fleetwood Mac Tribute band. They even look the part (mostly). 8 pm, $10.
Sunday, November 11 – It’s the 100th anniversary of World War I (“the war to end all wars” as it was billed). To honor this date, there’s a special event at the Focal Point: T.J. Muller and the St. Louis Ticklers will play pop hits, sing-alongs, instrumental rags, and novelty numbers of the era. 2 pm, $15.
What the Locals Know: Every Friday at Hammerstone’s there’s a Honky Tonk Happy Hour from 4 to 7 pm. There’s no better way to start your weekend off. Stay a little later and another band comes on at 8 pm – this Friday it’s Lucky Old Sons, which plays piano-driven rock and country tunes of the 1950s and 1960s.
Music Note of Note: St. Louis also loves recorded music, specifically the good ol’ long playing records. We have over a dozen stores where you can get new and used vinyl. Two of the most popular ones are Euclid Records and Vintage Vinyl, both of which regularly host live music.
