A to Z has some nice photos and a review of DeVotchKa’s show at The Pageant last Friday night. It was the night before I moved, so there was no feasible or responsible way for me to go. Having seen them at The Way Out Club and the Duck Room a couple times, I know the show was probably great.
So the future Mrs. and I are moving from our apartment today into our first house. It’s stressful and exciting and a new experience. I had to buy a lawn mower and a hose. It’s expensive. All the little things you don’t think about, that is.
Well, the weather has just cleared up enough for you to be able to venture out of your house tonight and head over to The City Museum to take part in the 2008 edition of Midwest Mayhem, an annual fundraiser for KDHX, the most excellent public radio station here in St. Louis.
Playing at the event are So Many Dynamos, Gumbohead, Rough Shop, Caleb Travers, Chris Talley Trio, Alvin Jett and the Phat Noiz Blues Band, the Hibernauts, Dub Kitchen, Earthworms, Zimbabwe Nkenya, Jon Hardy and the Public, and the Feed. On top of that, The Alley Cat Revue, “Saint Louis’s premier burlesque troupe”, will be there too. The event starts at 7 pm.
St. Louis’ Jumbling Towers just sent me a copy of their new 6-song EP, Classy Entertainment. It continues in the same vein as their excellent self-titled debut full length. Dry production, Rhodes piano, spooky synths and highly affected vocals. All in all, I like it quite a bit after just a few listens. I have included the new song, “Apartments”, below for your downloading pleasure. Download it, listen to it and see what you think.
I will have more details on how you can get a hold of the entire EP shortly, so check in often.
