Ah, spring. Well...sorta, we can only hope those March snowstorms lead to a warmer April -- we're off to a good start so far. There is a wide array of electronic shows coming through St. Louis this moth, with something for everyone. Let's dive in and see what's in the mix.
If you can't wait until May 21 to get your new Daft Punk music fix, the tribute group of One More Time is the best next thing. The duo pays homage to the French duo with masks and gets down to robot rock.
Friday, April 12 (Doors: 8 pm / Show: 9 p.m.) One More Time: A Tribute to Daft Punk w/ Coreyography and the Automatic Man a.k.a. Hulke @ 2720 Cherokee ($10 advance, $12 day of show; $5 minor surcharge) (18+)
The male-dominated world of electronic DJs and producers has several women in the mix, and Reid Speed is at the forefront. In addition to gracing the stage with bass heavy productions, she also runs Play Me Records and Play Me Too Records out of Santa Monica, California. This show also features New Zealand's bass peddlers Truth.
Saturday, April 13 (Doors: 7:30 p.m. / Show: 8 p.m.)
Reid Speed and Truth w/ Jim K, Brandon S and Heezy
@ 2720 Cherokee ($12 advance, $15 day of show; $5 minor surcharge) (18+)
The legendary Chicago DJ/producer Jimmie Page (not to be confused with Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page) arrives across the river at Oz Nightclub for a night-long danceathon led by go-go dancer Miss Cricket.
