Play:stl, Pygmalion and MESeptember 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.
