    Gunn Play - Former east St. Louis trumpeter Russell Gunn appears at the Sheldon as his major-label debut, Ethnomusicology, Volume 1, hits the shelves

    THRIFTY TIP NO. 54: What to do? Satellite TV is too dangerous to have in the house -- that many channels, that much free time is a recipe for disaster, a potential time vacuum, not to mention the costs involved. But the raves surrounding M2, MTV's si...

    Clever Disguise

    Los Lobos have been so good as a band, for so long, that the individual personalities involved have been lost to our sight. David Hidalgo has received some deserved recognition, but that has as much to do with his appearances on dozens of outside rec...

    SHELDON INFUSION: It's strange to consider that less than a decade ago the Sheldon Concert Hall was in jeopardy of being torn down. Today it's a thriving arts and music center, a space that on any given day may have two or three events taking place s...

    Wandering Stars

    The snow has turned St. Louis as white as Dick Clark's teeth. The sidewalks are glazed -- virtually unwalkable -- and cars are like roller skates forced to be ice skates. In one wintry neighborhood just fit for a snow globe, there's a house where the...
