Calling this (considerably lengthy!) list of shows "newly announced" is a bit of a misnomer. Historically, this weekly post is meant to highlight shows that have been announced within the prior seven days, but when the COVID-19 pandemic came along, that framework was put on hold.

Now, with new show announcements coming in steadily as the world adapts to life with endemic COVID, we're firing these posts back up to keep you informed about the goings-on in St. Louis' music world. But Rome wasn't built in a day, as they say, so for the next few weeks you're likely to see a deluge of shows both newly announced and those which have been on the books for some time as we rebuild our listings. That's due to the technical quirks of our system, which allows us only to export the shows that we've added within the last seven days, without differentiating those which were only recently announced.

Is that complicated? Maybe! But bear with us, as it will be less so in the near future. And as always, here's your obligatory COVID safety warning: Be sure to check with the venues before you make plans to head to any of these shows, as the virus is still circulating and safety measures vary from venue to venue.
