It has been a crazy, crazy crime-filled week in St. Louis. Let's all go to some shows and try to forget about it for a while, okay? Just please, for the love of dogs, be careful out there! This weekend, look for new releases from Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost and the Blu Skies, check out the extensive line-up at SLUM Fest and more.
Besides the following ten recommendations, consider these great shows: Read about Father John Misty, performing at the Firebird on Friday, June 14 and the Amends, performing at the Heavy Anchor on the same night.
Also, click back to our Out Every Night post from earlier this week to learn about the Kittypalooza Tenth Life Cat Rescue Benefit, George Porter Jr. & the Runnin' Pardners, The Blind Eyes and Beth Bombara's Double EP Release, Mary J. Blige, and The Supersuckers.
Did we leave something significant out? There's a chance it didn't make it onto our radar! Send your show tips anytime to firstname.lastname@example.org.
