Jack's Art Show at Koken Art Factory

Slide ShowJack's Art Show, a one-night-only celebration of St. Louis' wildest and weirdest artwork, was held at Koken Art Factory in South St. Louis. There was also a costume show and performance by local band Gentelman Auction House.

David Byrne on Saturday at the Fabulous Fox Theatre "Byrne was performing the works he and Brian Eno have collaborated on over the years. (1983’s non-Eno Talking Heads classic “Burning Down the House” made an appearance, but Byrne, ever a stickler for accuracy, made sure to note that it deviated from the theme.)" Read More.

Broken Social Scene on Saturday at the Gargoyle "With the release of Broken Social Scene presents Brendan Canning: Something For All Of Us... earlier this year, it became official that the Canadian collective is way more than just a simple rock band. As a result, many audience members -- myself included -- were concerned about the group's Gargoyle performance. Would they play enough old, familiar songs and not lean too heavily on Canning's relatively underwhelming solo effort? Would there be enough band members to fill out the band's massive sound? Would Land of Talk frontwoman Liz Powell be able to fill the shoes of former BSS sirens Amy Millan, Emily Haines and Leslie Feist? Is Broken Social Scene capable of, if need be, just rocking? Luckily, the answers to these questions were yes, yes, yes and yes." Read More.
