Under Cover WeekendSeptember 5, 2007
This weekend at Off Broadway, Tomko Bomb Co. brings you the first annual Under Cover Weekend, in which 10 of the best bands in St. Louis all take on a different musical persona. Five bands will play on Friday night and five more on Saturday night. Some of the bands include 7 Shot Screamers, Shame Club, Ghost in Light, the Bureau and the Hibernauts. Each band has chosen another band to transform into and will play an entire set of the chosen band’s music — and we’re not talking about covering other bands that are also playing the event, but famous, well-known superstars… like Def Leppard or Meatloaf or Run DMC or Debbie Gibson. Up until now, the bands have been practicing their new sets in secret, not letting anyone know who they are covering. In this week’s Riverfront Times, Annie Zeleski will let the cat(s) out of the bag with regards to which bands will be covering which bands. Be sure to check out her A to Z column later this week to find out Who is Who.
