  • Sade and John Legend at Scottrade Center
    If a lead singer can ever be a cipher, Sade Adu certainly inhabits that paradox. As an artist, she resists both interpretations and expectations. She rarely grants interviews; she's released two albums in the past eighteen years; she only tours when necessary. And the songs she sings with her...

  • Wes Johnson's Salt
    Of all the reasons why you should try the duck fat-fried chicken at Salt, Wes Johnson's terrific new restaurant in the Central West End, I can think of no higher recommendation than this: On a day when the heat index reached 110 degrees, when chicken fried in duck fat and served atop mashed...

  • Josh Ritter at Off Broadway
    To describe the music of Josh Ritter as earnest is to call Horatio Alger hopeful, Holden Caulfield disaffected and Hamlet a mama's boy. He's as sincere as a sonnet, as genuinely happy a performer as you'll ever see outside a circus where the free lemonade is laced with Zoloft. He knows he's...

  • NKOTBSB at the Scottrade Center
    The nine-person nostalgia train entered night amidst smoke, glitter and streamers, like the crystal-studded version of the biker from the Village People. Swathed in leather, studs, cubic zirconium and lots and lots of zippers that probably don't even open, the fivesome and the foursome...

  • Three Kings Public House in the Delmar Loop
    The standout appetizer is that pub classic of housemade chips and rarebit — in this case a "fondue" made from Irish cheddar and Urban Chestnut's terrific Winged Nut ale.

  • Late Night Food Porn
    We've all been there. It's 2 a.m. and you've been throwing back drinks all night, but you're not quite ready to go home and sleep it off. What you need is food, but not just any food -- you need some late night, greasy breakfast goodness. Think french toast, coffee and a pile of bacon. Yeah,...

  • U2 at Busch Stadium
    "Space Oddity" kicked in shortly after 9 p.m. and a camera showed U2 entering from some tunnel in order of reverse celebrity, with Bono taking up the rear and flashing a peace sign into the camera at his screaming worshipers. The World's Biggest Live Band took its place in the ring, greeted by...

  • SlutWalk St. Louis
    SlutWalk was created in response to comments made by a member of the Toronto police force, who said that "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized." Since then there have been a number of protests around the globe. That protest came to St. Louis on Saturday, July 16...

  • Skrillex at the Pageant
    The kids came out in droves to see the house that dubstep built. Worshipping at the temple of Skrillex, this new generation of music lovers has a penchant for lacerating synth and skull crushing bass wobble.
