Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: September 24 – 29
Science says that regularly attending concerts makes you happier – but we already knew that, that’s why we host so much live music every week. Here are a few Bands of Note:
Live Music in St. Louis
Monday, September 24 – The Glorious Sons come to Delmar Hall. They are touring off their second full-length album, Young Beauties & Fools, which is getting a lot of well-deserved attention. This is a group you want to catch early and often. Doors open at 7 pm, $12.
Wednesday, September 26 – A special show is happening at the Westport Playhouse: PBS retro-rocker and Jersey Boys star Christopher Kale Jones brings Bobby Darin back to life in a tribute that is as realistic as it is entertaining. Shows are at 2 pm and 7 pm, $70.
Thursday, September 27 – Looking for some old-timey music that plays “songs that you can understand the words to”? Treat yourself by getting to the Elks Club and hearing members of the group jam. Bring your banjo if you got one! 7:30 pm, free.
Friday, September 28 – Head over to Highway 61 Roadhouse in Webster Groves for some Cajun hospitality, which includes a performance by Aaron Griffin for some energy-driven blues. 7 pm, no cover.
Saturday, September 29 – If you missed David Byrne’s recent tour, here is a consolation prize: Talking Heads tribute band Start Making Sense comes to the Ready Room for some danceable fun. Doors open at 7 pm, $12.
What the Locals Know: At the National Blues Museum, every Friday is “Howlin’ Friday.” The wonderful Dana Austin and the Plush Band perform this Friday at 7 pm; tickets are $5 for members, $10 for nonmembers.
Music Note of Note: Did you know we have a banjo club? Since 1969, the St. Louis Banjo Club has brought the sounds of the four-string banjo to the enjoyment of locals everywhere. The club has 45 members, from those in their 20s to those in their 90s. They host open jams once a month!
