Honky-tonkin': St. Louis tries to pose as a tough city, what with its high crime rate and punk-rock venues, but deep down there's still no denying that it's a good ol' Midwestern town. So who better to celebrate the sentiment than the appropriately named Dodge Harley & the Missouri Riders? While this country & western quartet is known for performing covers everything from Hank Williams to Alan Jackson they're finally ready to release a down-home single that celebrates their slice of country life. Catch their CD-release party at Blueberry Hill's Duck Room (6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City, 314-727-4444; www.blueberryhill.com) on Saturday, August 5, at 9 p.m. Six bucks gets you in.
