The Reverend Uncle Marc
The Reverend Uncle Marc

Name: The Reverend Uncle Marc, a.k.a. Marcus Eder
Birthdate: December 1, 1973
High School: Hazelwood West High School
Can Be Found: Singing and playing mandolin in Strawfoot, and promoting and booking for the monthly alt-country gathering the Twangbang.
Career Highlight: As a kid attending shows at the Blue Note in Columbia, Marc never imagined he would someday play there. So opening for Of Montreal at the venue in February was a proud moment.
Fun Fact: The name's not just for show. Reverend Uncle Marc is a card-carrying reverend from the Universal Life Church. "I can legally marry and bury!" says Marc, though he has yet to actually preside over either occasion.

Strawfoot plays on Friday, October 27, at Lemmons, 5800 Gravois Avenue. $5. 314-481-4812.
