[Editor's Note: Long-time concert photographer Andrew Youssef found out two years ago that he had stage IV colon cancer. In that time, he has continued to shoot tons of music events, on top of other freelance work and working a day job at a hospital, of all places. As he continues to fight for his l ... More >>
Tongue-in-cheek boogie rockers Eagles of Death Metal announced that the band will be playing a concert in the shadow of the arch on May 18. The show is part of sponsor Jack Daniel's new Live at the Landmark show series, where as you might guess, bands play famous landmarks across the United States. ... More >>
This month marks twenty wonderful years since MTV aired the first episode of Beavis and Butthead. Mike Judge's hilarious cult phenomenon originally ran from March 8, 1993 to November 28, 1997, before being retired so that Judge could focus on Fox's animated series King of the Hill. When that show ca ... More >>
By Craig Hlavaty Before I take any trip to Austin and SXSW, I always take more than a few days to peruse the schedule and check out a few of the hundreds of names on the roster and read their bios. Some years there are more bands with "wolf" and "space" in their monikers than usual, and some year ... More >>
7 p.m. Sunday, December 30. Fubar, 3108 Locust Street.
7:30 p.m. Thursday, December 6. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.
There's lots of good shows this week for music fans of every shape in size, and I'm not just saying that (this time). Deicide is playing the Firebird on Friday, the same day Carolina Chocolate Drops plays the Sheldon. I'd wager that these two musical experiences will not be alike in many ways whatso ... More >>
That most excellent of holidays -- the one where we get to dress up in goofy costumes, the one where it's considered par for the course to vandalize your neighbors' houses, the one where strangers give children candy and everyone is cool with it -- HALLOWEEN is nigh! Skeleton decorations blanket the ... More >>

When metal demigod Dave Mustaine isn't raising eyebrows with his kind words about GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, he's usually melting faces as the frontman for Megadeth. With so many years of rocking under his proverbial belt, Mustaine is entitled to some of the finer things in life. But a ... More >>
Last week we alluded to the fact that this March is a great time to be a music fan in St. Louis....this week we're driving the point home and then some. Unless you are capable of bi-location (or in some cases: tri / quadro), you are going to miss some good shows this week. We have Andrew Bird at the ... More >>
Everyone has a new year's resolution, especially the people who jump down your throat and lecture you about how stupid resolutions are. You know they've got 'em, and theirs are probably especially shameful. Since you don't need to lose any weight (really, you look fantastic!) and you've already qu ... More >>
The Return of Gateway to the West Fest From 2002 until 2008, local hardcore hero and all-around-badass Adam "The Devastator" Greer booked roughly 250 shows in the St. Louis area and beyond. I use the term "badass" rather than "promoter", because I don't think he would like being called the P ... More >>
Drugs are a crucial part of the classic triumvirate of rock & roll; very few things in our society are of enough import to rival "sex." As a result, drugs have been mentioned and implied in countless songs crossing every imaginable genre. I'm sure there's some Indonesian Gamelan track about o ... More >>
7:30 p.m. Friday, January 14. The Scottrade Center, 1401 Clark Avenue.
Well, this is a bummer: Just got word that Ozzy Osbourne's show tonight at the Scottrade Center is canceled "due to an ear infection." According to the publicist's note, the show will now take place on Friday, January 14, 2011. All tickets for tonight's show will be honored then. Refunds are also av ... More >>

You just know that this dude's neighbors hate him. Here's a guy in Southern California who programs his Christmas lights displays to music. We're talking a couple of Trans-Siberian Orchestra tunes, Vince Guaraldi's "Linus & Lucy" and, last year, Slayer's "Raining Blood." The video is nothing short o ... More >>
The number of chain record stores nationwide has dwindled. However, St. Louis has become an unlikely safe haven for indie record shops as well as for DJs who prefer to spin the black circle instead of scrolling their iPods. In this weekly column, we'll focus on personal portraits of St. Louis' recor ... More >>
At the KSHE Pig Roast on Saturday, the station announced that Ozzy Osbourne and Halford (featuring -- you guessed it! -- Judas Priest's Rob Halford) would be playing the Scottrade Center on December 10. Ticket info for that show emerged this morning: They're on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m. and star ... More >>

Whenever my father and I discuss great concerts he brings up the first time he saw the Jimi Hendrix Experience. "When just those three guys walked out on stage," he always says, "I said there's no way just the three of them could make all that sound like on the record. And they didn't. They made mor ...

Alice in Chains has done the unthinkable. The Seattle band lost its original lead singer, Layne Staley, to a drug overdose in 2002, regrouped with a new vocalist, William DuVall, recorded a new album, Black Gives Way to Blue -- and hasn't tarnished its legacy. That was clear at a smoke-hazed Pageant ... More >>
Photo: Todd OwyoungFrom last night's show at the Scottrade Center. See more photos of Green Day last night. Caveat: I've been a Green Day fan since 1994 or so. And so I have a sneaking suspicion that last night's Scottrade Center show wasn't for me - even though the band ran through plenty of ... More >>
So yesterday, the Rockstar Mayhem Festival again rolled through St. Louis, and much like last year, the day-into-night metal festival drew out the area's die-hard metalheads. Photographer Kenny Williamson was at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater to document the scene there (full photo set here.) Photo ... More >>
