Peter Frampton Fri., March 30, 8:00pm @ Peabody Opera House - $30-90 By Dan Moore From this 2011 blog post: Classic rock fans, recently empty-nested mothers, and talkbox enthusiasts take note: Peter Frampton is going to play the iconic Frampton Comes Alive! in its entirety in St. Louis, part of a 35th Anniversary tour that will see the 1970s rocker play his classic live double-album in its entirety. The show is on March 30th at the Peabody Opera House (14th St. and Market Street, 314-241-1888) Ed: Peter Frampton contacted RFT Music to clarify that he did not, in fact, overdub Frampton Comes Alive! Please see our interview with him for a full explanation.


Pete Rock Fri., March 30, 10:00pm @ Lola - $10-15 By Daniel Hill Pete Rock is a living legend of hip-hop ― often mentioned alongside J Dilla, the RZA and DJ Premier as a pioneer of the '90s East Coast sound. Rock also played a substantial part in incorporating elements of jazz into hip-hop, especially earlier in his career when he would add horn samples to accentuate his beats ― in this way, Rock can also list A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Gang Starr as peers. He's worked with Marley Marl, Wu-Tang Clan, Kanye West, Nas, Public Enemy....get the picture?? Legend. Rock even contends that the production credit for Notorious B.I.G.'s super-hit "Juicy" should technically go to him; the funny thing is he's not too worried about it. Considering his confirmed credentials, its easy for one to understand his position. Another Pete Rock Remix: As part of Lola's "Speakerboxx" series, Rock will be behind the turntables grinding away at what made him famous: DJing the party from 10 p.m. until 2:30 in the morning. Bring your dancin' shoes.


Yonder Mountain String Band Fri., March 30 & Sat., March 31, 6:30pm @ The Pageant - $22.50adv / $25dos By Roy Kasten From this 2010 blog post: Once upon a time, a string band meant hillbilly music as advanced by Roy Acuff, Charlie Poole and John Hartford. But the Grateful Dead and outdoor-festival culture changed all that. The Colorado-based acoustic rockers of Yonder Mountain String Band have long known who now calls the tune: snowboard bums, collegiate bro-grassers and summer-fest freaks. That demographic has transformed it into the quasi-string band equivalent of the Dave Matthews Band, a massively successful touring operation that cranks out live recordings faster than even its own instrumental breaks. But like DMB, YMSB is fueled by musicianship and a groove channeled into warp-speed bluegrass -- and the band has enough of a connection to country roots that even skeptics may want to ring in the new year with a hyper-driven hippie twirl.


Pillow Talk Demo Release Sat., March 31, 10:00pm @ CBGB - free By Joseph Hess Nine months have passed since Glass Teeth tore a hole through St. Louis music, only to bow out the same night as its CD release show. Drummer Mike Hansen and venerable front-man Jeff Robtoy have since moved on to more aggressive pastures in Pillow Talk. Hansen's break-beats and Robtoy's aggressive banter draw clear parallels to their former band, but Pillow Talk features a metallic Albini-style guitar tone which differentiates the band from its predecessor. Comparisons aside, Pillow Talk offers vibrant psychedelic rock riffs with a vicious punk rock delivery. Don't Go Home Empty Handed: Pillow Talk is set to release its first recorded demo this evening, so don't leave without a shiny copy of your very own.


Lemmon's Cancer Benefit Show Sun., April 1, 6:00pm @ Lemmons - $5 By Daniel Hill A benefit show intended to raise money for the American Cancer Society, this show is jam-packed with bands and sponsors. There'll be music from several local bands: Black for a Second, Winchester, Guy Morgan, Popular Mechanics, Chill Dawgs and THORLOCK, and the event is sponsored by PBR, St Louis Sinner and Throwing Things Records. Raffles from Cheap Trx, Tap Room, Hammerstone's, Friendly's, Mokabe's, The Silver Ballroom, Lemmons, Mangia, Beauty Bar Hair Salon and Mud House will take place -- come out, have a good time and maybe win some prizes. Only 5 bucks and all for a good cause!
