LIVE SHOWS 2 SEE

 

 

April 20

Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors: Medicine @ The Ready Room w/ Jilll Andrews 7pm, $16-$18

Drew Holcomb will win you over with his honest lyrics and undeniably catchy melodies. Catch him at the Ready Room Wednesday to witness a true Tennessee break-out band.

Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal @ Broadway Oyster Bar 9pm, $7

From funky grooves to smooth soul, this bluesy R&B band wants to share with you songs from their latest album, “Running from Love.” Hoyer’s signature sound takes listeners on a journey through the struggle to find contentment, the desire to change the world for the better and the universal need for more love. Don’t miss this one!

Jimmy Tebeau @ The Bootleg at Atomic Cowboy 7pm, FREE

If you don’t know Tebeau, he is usually playing with The Schwag—a tribute to The Grateful Dead. Tebeau solo will surely make a memorable night!

April 21

KDHX Presents Karuna: Hamid Drake & Adam Rudolph Duet @ Joe’s Cafe 7pm, $20

After more than 40 years of making music together, these percussionists come together as a duo for the first time to present their unique and evolved rhythm languages, in concert they aspire to inspire any audience though spirited dialogue. Joe’s Cafe is definitely a spot to check out, too!

Henry Phillips @ Brennan’s Cigar Lounge 7:30pm, $12

Henry Phillips (“Comedy Central Presents” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”) comes to the Central West End to perform his twisted songs and comedic stories. His critically acclaimed albums fuse mellow folk-rock ballads with psychopathic lyrics.

April 22

Puscifer @ The Peabody Opera House  7:30pm, $32-$52

Described as the “creative subconscious” of Maynard James Keenan (Tool and A Perfect Circle), Puscifer features a large cast of notable musicians. Keenan works with like-minded artists to create less of a ‘rock band’ and more of a musical collective.

Andrew Bird @ The Pageant w/ Dawn of Midi 8pm, $32.50-$42.50

His latest album, “Are You Serious,” is a direct reflection of his own human experience and it’s taken on a life of its own. If you’re a Bird fan, you surely won’t miss him presenting his most vulnerable album to date.

John Anderson @ Effingham Performance Center 8pm, $33-$39

Just outside of St. Louis in Effingham, Illinois, neo-honky tonker John Anderson will perform his country licks and ’80s hits.

April 23

River Kittens @ Off Broadway w/ 4th City Rag and Cara Louise Band (yep, that’s me.) 9pm, $10

I might be a little biased on this one, but this show will surely be a good time. The River Kittens just release their self-titled EP last month and have taken the St. Louis music scene by storm! Let’s not forget their incredible performance opening for Pokey LaFarge at the Pageant this past New Year’s Eve. Come out and sing along!

The English Beat @ Blueberry Hill’s Duck Room 8pm, $27.50

After their cover of Smokey Robinson’s “The Tears of A Clown,” The Beat took off. They are a two-tone ska band that incorporates pop, soul, reggae and punk in their music.

David Liebman Expressions @ Jazz at the Bistro 7:30 & 9:30, $30

Having experienced the 1970s with Elvin Jones and Miles Davis, Liebman’s newest project, Expansions, features up-and-comers like pianist Bobby Avey, reedman Matt Vashlishan, and drummer Alex Ritz, along with a continuation of Liebman’s long relationship with bassist Tony Marino.
