    By the Numbers - Japanese composer/remix master Nobukazu Takemura transforms the binary babble of skitterish CDs into pure beauty

    The promise of digital music reproduction compact discs if you recall, was not only "perfect sound" but indestructible sound. In the future, said the salesmen, no longer will we have to return a CD to the jewel box after listening to it. Just...

    BAGPIPE ALERT! Not too long ago, a dozen or so kids "decided that St. Louis was in need of some crazy art activity," and, coming as they did from the punk scene, they didn't want to wait around for somebody else to make it possible. The result is the...

    Slicker, Chisel Drill Hammer, Illium, and Ghosts and Vodka - Friday, July 16; Rocket Bar
