Homeward bound: For the past seven weeks, St. Louis singer-songwriter Geoff Koch has traipsed across the nation in support of his recently released album, Live at Lucas School House. Koch, a placid guitarist who infuses his gravelly Owen-esque music with the occasional piano or harmonica riff, is renowned for his stripped-down Midwestern sensibilities, so isn't it appropriate to rejoice his return to the ol' stomping ground? Celebrate Geoff Koch's homecoming at Mississippi Nights (914 North First Street; 314-421-3853; www.mississippinights.com) on Friday, September 22, at 8 p.m. Joining him will be local thought-rockers the Hatch, Redding and Miller Howell. Tickets are merely $7. Kristyn Pomranz
