  • A Night For Lee - Friday @ Molly's in Soulard

It's one of those weeks. My laptop broke, my vehicle broke and ultimately, my wallet's broke. Fortunately, some shows will cost a mere $5 to provide some cheer to get over these betrayals by machines (proof that you don't have to break the bank for a good time practically anytime: check out the price sorting function on our concert calendar). And 72 degrees today? Let's hope the forecast plays out, because all this talk of sunny Texas is making us jealous. At the very least, warm up this weekend with feel-good performances such as Gateway Men's Chorus with The B-52s' Fred Schneider. Read on for more recommendations this weekend, including Caspian, Deceased and Devon Allman's CD Release.

Friday (Mar. 15):

Behold... The Arctopus w/ Yowie, Sine Nomine @ Blank Space 9 p.m. | $5 Two of the Lou's heaviest hitting experimental rock scene vets emerge to play far-and-few-between sets to support prog metalheads Arctopus, on tour in support of their latest album, "Horrorscension." Not for the faint of heart. (MS)

Caspian w/ Native, Foxing @ The Firebird 9 p.m. | $12/$14 Subdued melodies and epic swells abound during this evening of post-rock, post-hardcore and "post-prickly" (a la Foxing). (MS)

A Night for Lee @ Molly's in Soulard w/ Matt Leach, Coreyography, Billy Brown 10 p.m. | $20 This memorial party honors St. Louis nightlife fixture and former RFT photographer Lee Harris. (MS)
