Welcome to the weekend! I'm operating from a strategic satellite location out of town at the moment, so I can't tell if it's spring in St. Louis yet. Regardless, I am bummed to be missing out on some awesome shows this weekend. For starters, Fister, Old Salt Union, Great Isaac and Tear Out the Heart debut some great new releases. Read on for more recommendations including KDHX's tribute to The Kinks and a snippet from KWUR Week.
