It's spring! It's sunny! It's raining! There's a tornado! It's cold! Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore. Whatever the weather may be this weekend during this typical questionable Midwestern season, the show must go on. Our "Out Every Night" post at the start of the week previewed some shows including One More Time: A Tribute to Daft Punk, Fred Friction's album release and Cheryl Wheeler. Read on for more recommendations including new local releases from Unanimous and Brookroyal.
Friday (April 12):
Bryson Gerard w/ Syna So Pro, Pat Eagan @ Livery Company 8 p.m. | free Bryson Gerard's folksy tunes cannot be confined to ordinary American instruments. See him employ the Hammered Dulcimer, Greek Bouzoki and some African / Mideast percussion at this free show with openers Syna So Pro and Pat Eagan. (DH)
Nikki Hill @ Siete Luminarias 6 p.m. | free Nikki Hill's tour plans start this Saturday and include Illinois, Germany, Norway, Netherlands, Spain, Finland and Sweden throughout the spring and summer. Give her a splendid St. Louis send off over dinner, but hurry -- seats will fill up quickly! (MS)
