Dan Deacon - Sunday @ the Firebird

Kelley Hunt Band @ BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups 7:00 p.m. | $15 Kansas City's Kelley Hunt is a musical force to be reckoned with, playing roots R&B and Americana with a fresh feel, a compelling voice and an impressive command of the keys. (DH)

Nite Owl @ Blueberry Hill w/ Nikko Smith, Collalbo Queens, Syna So Pro, DJ K'nine 9:00 p.m. | $7 This show is said to be the last of the year for both Nite Owl and Syna So Pro; don't miss your last chance in 2012 to see two of St. Louis' finest in action. (DH)

Big Muddy Blues Festival @ Laclede's Landing On Saturday and Sunday 1:00 p.m. | $10/$25 It will, in fact, be muddy, but the exceptionally strong lineup will still play, with contingency plans in place to move the shows into a variety of bars and clubs in Laclede's Landing, Beale Street style. (KM)

Sunday:

Off Broadway Pig Roast @ Off Broadway w/ Old Lights, Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost, Hobo Knife 7:00 p.m. | $10-$12 Sure, you could go to that other pig roast. But this one features an actual pig being roasted, and you get a night of music as finger-lickin' as the food. (KM)

Dan Deacon @ The Firebird 9:00 p.m. | $12 Dan Deacon's latest release, America, is his most heady, challenging release to date. But that will not mean a think piece of a concert -- Dan Deacon is famous for leading his crowds like an aerobics instructor. Wear sweat bands if you've got 'em. (KM)
