It's been another steller year for live music in St. Louis, whether you were looking for the most legendary living pop artist or the quiet birth of a powerful local band. We've racked our brans and come up with our twenty favorite shows (they're listed below), but what tops your list?

Well, the white trousers are back in storage and the river flotation seat with tall-boy sized cup-holders is deflated. We may have a few warm days ahead still, but summer is behind us. Lest it all fade into a haze of sweating (so it was hot this summer...), we here at RFT Music have preserved the bi ... More >>
Matisyahu, the newly clean-shaven Hasidic rapper/singer, will be appearing on August 16 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in support of Sublime with Rome. Exciting, yes, but not compared to his just-announced free in-store at Vintage Vinyl (6610 Delmar Blvd). This follows recent appearances by bi ... More >>

Attention cheap and poor folks in St. Louis: Four of the ten shows listed here this week won't cost you a dime! Tenacious D at Vintage vinyl (better show up early to ensure entry though -- big band, small venue), David Beeman & Kit Hamon of Old Lights playing a more intimate set at Plush, then back ... More >>

Every newly announced show this week! Comedy and music fans, rejoice: The D is coming to town. For the uninitiated, I'm referring to Tenacious D -- the two-man wonderband will play the Pageant on July 23 with The Sights. They also just released a new video yesterday; see it below. For fans of southe ... More >>
Tenacious D has just announced a show at the Pageant. It's July 23, or roughly a month after the release of the band's third album, Rize of the Fenix.
Tickets are $39.50 for general admission or $44.50 for reserved balcony seats. They go on sale this Friday, March 30 at 10 a.m., but there's a Face ... More >>
Sometimes we just need to take a break from a song. One can only hear the same words and melody so many times until it loses all meaning, like saying "sandals" or "popcorn" a few dozen times. Unfortunately, some great songs are never revisited -- maybe because of overkill, maybe because of the stigm ... More >>
Seth OlenickPaul F. Tompkins will bust your gut on Saturday! Lit'rally. Did we lurve Paul F. Tompkins the most on Mr. Show, Tenacious D, VH1's Best Week Ever or his stand-up? No matter. You can catch his act at the Firebird on Saturday night thanks to a new business model: if 300 people on Facebo ... More >>
