Gold Motel @ The Firebird w/ We Should Leave This Tree 8:00 p.m. | $10 Singer-songwriter Greta Morgan, formerly of The Hush Sound, traveled to California following that band's disbanding and returned to write dreamy, nostalgic summer jams inspired by the trip. "Gold Motel" is the name the band members literally pulled out of a hat. (DH)

Della Reese: My Life in Song @ The Sheldon 8:00 p.m. | $40-$60 Don't you know? That "Touched By An Angel" chick used to be a musician! Who'dathunkit. (DH)

No Class / Dark Ages / Miami Dolphins - Generator Show @ The Mississippi Riverside w/ Totally Gay Cop, Who Fucking Cares? 6:00 p.m. | Free Outdoors, next to the river, powered by a generator. Punx unite! Remember the van show? (DH)


Future & Pusha T @ Ambassador 7:30 p.m. | $20-$65 This show was cancelled and rescheduled last time it was supposed to happen. Here's hoping for a better round two. (DH)

Naked Raygun @ The Firebird w/ The Humanoids, Ultraman, Better Days, Hot Atomics 7:30 p.m. | $15 Chicago's legendary Naked Raygun plays St. Louis with a stacked bill of talented locals; not to be missed. (DH)
