Live Music in St. Louis this Week
Tuesday, March 6 – The Dark Room at the Grandel raises the stakes by bringing great jazz on Tuesday nights. This night is hosted by local jazz monsters Montez Coleman (drums) and Eric Slaughter (guitar). 7 pm, no cover.
Wednesday, March 7 – Arguably the most versatile band in town, Sean Canan’s Voodoo Players is down at the Broadway Oyster Bar taking on Bob Dylan. 8 pm, $10.
Thursday, March 8 – Brian Sax of the Thunder Biscuit Orchestra “entertains all who cross our threshold this evening.” “Our threshold” is a newer place, the Naked Vine out in Chesterfield. 7 pm, no cover.
Friday, March 9 – Two words you don’t see together every day: “symphonic” and “hip hop.” Well, that’s what is happening tonight when Wyclef Jean joins the SLSO at Powell Symphony Hall for what is sure to be a unique evening of music. 7:30 pm, $45–$85.
Saturday, March 10 – The rock quintet Big Rain returns to the Sky Music Lounge in West County performing their mix of pop, rock, and alt rock music. Their motto: “You probably won’t hear a lot of 80s and 90s music – haven’t you heard that enough?” Indeed. Geeters & Muscle Cars gets the party going at 6:30. 9:30 pm, $10.
What the Locals Know: The W Karaoke Lounge is our first Asian-style karaoke lounge … in addition to the main room’s state-of-the-art karaoke system, there are 10 private rooms for … more karaoke. Seriously. All the rooms have intimate wraparound couches, stools, and cordless mics. Some rooms hold 10, some up to 25, and they can be rented by the hour.
Music Note of Note: In a 9,000-square-foot building in the Central West End, you’ll find Jackson Pianos. Since 1999, Joe Jackson has been refurbishing pianos of all types and sizes, ages, and brands for every budget. He regularly donates instruments and his services to local schools, churches, and nonprofits.
