Pictures from The Lot

September 21, 2007

So, I posted some video from this year’s Lot Festival earlier this week, and tonight I am going to post some GREAT photos taken at this year’s event by Jim Courrier (see all of his flickr photos here and his myspace page here). He managed to snap pictures of all but one of the bands that night and, as usual, his photos are top-notch.

September 19, 2007

This weekend, the good folks at Playback:Stl are putting on their first annual Play:Stl Festival. It is going to take place at various clubs along The Delmar Loop in University City this Friday and Saturday. For putting this together in such a short period, they managed to pull together a pretty good lineup, featuring Margot and the Nuclear So & So’s, King Thief, The Hibernauts, and many, many more.


Also, if you happen to be… not in St. Louis this weekend, you could head to Urbana-Champaign, Illinois for the Pygmalion Music Festival, which started yesterday and features several St. Louis bands playing, as well, including Gentleman Auction House and Jumbling Towers. The Festival has a great lineup, featuring Okkervil River, Andrew Bird, Damien Jurardo, Margot & the Nuclear So & So’s, ?uestlove, Foundry Field Recordings, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, Bound Stems, Shapes and Sizes, Headlights, and Owen.


Fianlly, be sure to head up to The Royale this Thursday, from 6:00 – 10: 00 p.m. while I DJ. Come up and say hi.
