St. Louis Concert Calendar January 11, 2008 through May

Hey, remember when I made that awesome, comprehensive concert calendar last year? And it disappeared for awhile, because it was too unwieldy to keep up with? Well, the amount of shows coming to town has become so ridiculous, that to help my own sanity, I’m bringing it back. Behold: Your concert guide for the next few months (as always, a work in progress). Don’t ever say there’s nothing to do in St. Louis.
