All those poor Thursday shows had a run-in with a winter storm, and few made it out alive. Avenge their would-be good times by living out the glory with these shows -- there's way too much cool stuff (no pun intended) happening to skip out on account of a little bit of snow.

Brothers Lazaroff, Clockwork and Ou Où release albums, Garagefest and the St. Louis Blues Festival deliver attention-worthy line-ups, and notable touring acts like Trinidad James and Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder take to the stage. In addition to these picks, read up on Meshuggah (at Pop's this Saturday) and scope out shows on Sunday (none made it on to our final list) via our concert calendar. Bundle up, be safe and melt away that Snowmageddon with some glowing sounds.

Friday (Feb. 22):

Brothers Lazaroff Single Release w/ Jump Starts, Marmalakes @ Cicero's 8:30 p.m. | $8-$10 Brothers Lazaroff commit their single "Battle Hymn" from their upcoming album, "Hope, Fear, Youth" to wax. Listen to it here and try not to get all misty-eyed before checking it out live. (MS)

Celebration Day: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin @ The Pageant 8 p.m. | $20-$22 I have eight free tickets to this show sitting on my desk, so if you haven't bought yours yet, win mine! (DH)

Garagefest Day 2 w/ Oil Boom, Bruiser Queen, The Girls 2021, Holy Doldrums, Sleepy & the Bedtimes, Animal Teeth @ The Heavy Anchor 8 p.m. | $6 If you missed out on day one's festivities, don't despair. There are still plenty of raw garage sounds to go around! While you're at it, go ahead and check out the line-up for day three's festivities. (MS)

Ou Où Album Release w/ Black James, Britches, Problems That Fix Themselves, Beauty Pageant @ Blank Space 8 p.m. | $5 Some of the city's crazily creative forces combine for one evening to experiment with electronic soundscapes, cheeky performance art, non-traditional video visuals and cookies. You heard me right -- cookies. (MS)

Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder @ The Sheldon 8 p.m. | $40-$45 Veteran bluegrasser Ricky Skaggs has won fourteen Grammy awards in the course of his career. Fair to say he's good at what he does. (DH)
